Curiosity seems to be saying, “Are you looking at me?”
cosmiclog.nbcnews.com...

The MAHLI (Mars Hand Lens Imager ) team at San Diego-based Malin Space Science Systems and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory used the Mars Hand Lens Imager looking backward from the end of the rover's 7-foot-long robotic arm. Ohio engineer Joe Knapp put together several pictures that show the six-wheeled, nuclear-powered mobile laboratory at a geological site of interest known as Glenelg.

I know you are laughing at that statement about footprints.....But, what are they??

Plus it says the picture is taken from the robotic arm?? Where is the arm in the picture?? Unless it can magically detatch itself and take a picture, what am I missing??

I was thinking the same thing. I keep looking and looking but just don't get how the picture was taken. I see no arm extending out from the rover...

Because of the way the mosaic was made, the very end of the robotic arm has made a spooky disappearance.

"I did it in a bit of a rush," Atkinson wrote, "but it doesn't really matter, does it? Just a pretty pic, not an official NASA product. :-)"

The answer is that Curiosity itself is responsible for the pictures, with strong assists from image-processing gurus.

They exposed themselves, photoshop'd at it's finest, and guy did it on the rush...

It's sort of difficult to create a mosaic without "photoshopping".
