  • There is a selfie from Curiosity, the Mars vehicle traveler!

Along with capturing an image before its steepest ascent ever, the robotic explorer filmed its "selfie stick", or robotic arm, in action.

NASA's Curiosity rover is on top of the world.

Curiosity is NASA's exclusively functioning rover on Mars in the mean time, however it'll hopefully quickly be joined by Perseverance, which is scheduled to launch in July.

The Greenheugh Pediment is on the slopes of Mount Sharp, the 3.4-mile-high (5.5 km) mountain that Curiosity has been climbing since September 2014.

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover recently set a record for the steepest terrain it's ever climbed, cresting the "Greenheugh Pediment", a broad sheet of rock that sits atop a hill. "The crumbling rock layer at the top of the image is "the Greenheugh Pediment", which Curiosity climbed soon after taking the image", an expert tweets out. The vehicle, which spent 2696 days on Mars, missed the 32-degree tilt record in 2016 on March 6, 2020, with a degree of difference.

The Underground network has been hugely reduced by Transport for London (TfL) with 40 stations shut and many services cut back. He further added saying that TFL was running the maximum service they could with meager staff at this moment.

After reaching its target, it drilled a hole on the Martian surface to reach a bedrock labeled as Hutton. Before it scaled the daunting task, the rover used its Mars Hand Lens Camera (MAHLi) mounted on the turret at the end of its arm to capture a selfie. Those images are put together to create the final selfie.

The reason for so many images is that, MAHLI only captures a small area in one shot as its main goal is to provide close-up view of sand grains and rock textures, acting like a magnifying glass. Rover operators at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California carefully map out each drive to make sure Curiosity will be safe.

Aside from scientific purposes, the rover can also take selfies using the MAHLI.

When you're curious how Curiosity manages to take selfies on Mars, then try NASA's new video about the process, which requires utilizing the robotic arm to seize 86 photos. Curiosity took the selfie on February 26, 2020 (Sol 2687). This is done by rotating the camera into multiple positions in order to take multiple photos of Curiosity and its surroundings.
