The Curiosity Rover currently cruising the surface of Mars has sent back a panoramic self portrait of itself in Mars’ Gale Crater.

If you are wondering how this shot was taken, the rover used a robotic arm that was able to move out of frame by taking multiple shots stitched together.

Check out the high res version.
