Curiosity Takes Another Selfie on Mars...

Last week, NASA released new photos of Curiosity that was obtained using the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) on the rover's robotic arm. The self-portrait was taken while the six-wheeled spacecraft remains stationed at "the Kimberley"...a scientific waypoint where Curiosity is drilling for rock samples and gathering data prior to resuming her voyage to Mount Sharp. The rover should reach her 3-mile-high primary destination before the end of this year.
