NASAs Curiosity Rover takes a selfie from Mars mountain

"During uphill struggles, think of the view from the top. I completed my steepest climb yet in “Greenheugh Pediment.” It took three drives, and was worth it. Before I scaled the hill, I took this self-portrait. Here's why you don't see my arm in the shot," said NASA's Curiosity Rover, sending to the Earth its selfie from a mountain on Mars.

The pic is going viral across the world, with stunned social media users sharing it with curiosity. "Here's my “selfie stick” in action. The MAHLI camera at the end of my robotic arm takes the individual frames that get stitched into the full panorama you see," the Rover further said.

"This selfie was taken by Curiosity Mars rover on Feb. 26, 2020 (the 2,687th Martian day, or sol, of the mission). 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.

It's a human-like thing for the Rover to have taken the selfie, NASA commented.
