Curiosity Rover's Self Portrait at 'John Klein' Drilling Site
Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS

Uploader comment: This self-portrait of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity combines 66 exposures taken by the rover's Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) during the 177th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars (February 3, 2013). The rover is positioned at a patch of flat outcrop called "John Klein," which was selected as the site for the first rock-drilling activities by Curiosity.
