Did you try Google? Maybe ask Google. Then come back and explain to the rest of us.

The answer to that is given the article you refer to.

if it used a selfie stick, you'd be able to see it wouldn't you?

The video linked in the article explains it quite well. It's using it's own "selfy-stick" nav cams apparently.

Nope. The 'selfie' is actually a composition of many pictures. The arm is moving and pictures are being taken, and then the selfie is patched together using these pictures.

I think they erase it. We have seen similar, and that was the answer

Go out and take a pic with a selfie stick.

Lets test your ignorance?

The articulated arm is never in focus, the arm camera is just taking a picture.
However I don't like particularly like panoramas NASA have used that are problematic because they are not true images.

The entire selfie is a 360-degree panorama stitched together from 86 images relayed to Earth.

The linked article literally has a section called "How Are Selfies Taken?"
