Mars Rover Curiosity Landing: 1st Photos from Mars | Space.com

From Space.com

The first shot, taken immediately after landing. W00t!

Early Curiosity photo

 

…and Curiosity’s shadow. On Mars. My mind reels.

Best comment, from Lilek’s Bleat
Watched the Curiosity landing last night. Magnificent. I was disappointed by the first few snapshots. I mean, after the brilliance and multi-fold  technological pirouette of a landing (supersonic parachutes, descent stages, heat shield jettison, retro rockets, skycrane), all we get is Apollo 11 grainy black and white photos akin to cave dwelling scratchings? Honestly, I expected an Instagram.
