Everyone loves a selfie, and how cool would a selfie on Mars be.

Nasa’s Curiosity vehicle, currently on Mars has sent back its first selfie.

The Rover has been on the red planet since 2012 exploring the planet.

Curiosity took a 360 degree picture of its current location on Vera Rubin Ridge.

It shows the aftermath of a dust storm and a rare snap of the rover itself.

Experts say Curiosity has never been anywhere on the planet which has so much variation in colour and texture.

  1. I wonder why exactly they took the selfie, It might have been to get an Idea of how the outside of the rover is coping with the extreme condishins. Or it might have been to keep public intrest up.
