The first shot, taken immediately after landing. W00t!
…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.
