For those interested, here is the first colour panorama taken by Curiosity.
It should be noted, ArMap, that the high resolution version of that image is still on board the rover. They next thing the rover will do is a planned
software update (from a landing-optimized software to roving-optimized software), and NASA is waiting for that update to be done beofre downloding the
high-res version of that.
That image you posted is a mosaic made up of 130 lower resolution images, and took 90 minutes to download. just think how long the high-res version
will take to download.
