NASA news: Curiosity rover snaps a breathtaking selfie on Mars – 360-degree panorama

NASA said: "In front of the rover is a hole it drilled while sampling a bedrock target called 'Hutton'.

"The entire selfie is a 360-degree panorama stitched together from 86 images related to Earth.

"The selfie captures the rover about 11 feet (3.4m) below the point where it climbed onto the crumbling pediment."

Curiosity completed the climb on March 6 or the 2,696th Martian day of its mission.

Since 2014, Curiosity has been based around Mount Sharp, a three mile (five kilometres) mountain at the centre of Gale Crater.
