Martian selfie

Moments before setting a record for the steepest terrain it has ever climbed, NASA’s Curiosity rover took a selfie. This selfie is composed of 86 individual images taken by the Mars Hand Lens Imager camera on the end of the rover’s robotic arm that were stitched into a panorama. In February 2021, NASA’s Mars 2020 rover, Perseverance, will land on Martian soil. Canada is part of this first-ever project to collect, seal, and store rock samples on the red planet for possible return to Earth. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS)
