I cant get enough of Curiosity pictures,... truly amazing the things we can do when we put our mind to it.

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

sorry if im an idiot... but in the second picture... is that spose to be itself taking a pic of itself...because you can see the whole robot in the second pic and there is no arm or anything that is not in the shot. or is something else taking it that i dont know about? i dont really listen to all this NASA stuff. So if there were 5 robots on the planet, then i would not know. lol


EDIT.....oops.... should of read the comments first!  Sorry to be repetitive.

Don't worry...you are not an idiot.  Consider for a moment however that you were an idiot.  You wouldn't know you were an idiot...so you wouldn't be apologizing for thinking that maybe you were an idiot  and if you were not an idiot then no apologizing for being an idiot would be necessary.  Phew.... :unsure2:

You know that is a darn good question. It's like someone at NASA is feeding the conspiracy theorists, and we all know what they say

Curiosity killed the cat!

What the hell that cat was doing on Mars in the first place I have no idea!

Yeah, the second picture clearly shows absolutely no attachment to the camera.
You can see the ground!

I would say that the boom IS there, but was edited-out for clarity.
After all, these are mosaic pictures.
