Mars Curiosity made selfi against the background of a sandstorm

The Curiosity is continuing its journey through Mars. Last week, the device was near a stormy storm on the Red Planet and made a photo nearby. The user Flickr shared the photo Shaun Doran.

Another rover, Opportunity, is now not up to the Selfie: a sand storm was hit by an alien all-terrain vehicle. The Rover was stuck in the sands, and the batteries were almost empty – the sand grains flying around Mars did not allow the sun’s rays to get on the panel of the all-terrain vehicle. As a result, Opportunity has lost touch with the Earth, but NASA hopes that the rover will be able to revive.

The principle of creating a Curiosity Selfi without a “hand” in the frame is shown here:
