InSight sent the first selfie from Mars

The InSight research probe, using a camera mounted on his robotic arm, made the first selfie mosaic of 11 images. The photo shows the opened solar panels, the scientific instruments of the probe, as well as the 4 by 2 meter platforms on which it stands.

On this site, a robotic arm will place scientific instruments, a seismometer, a heat flow sensor and others. NASA experts note that the site turned up great: there are no stones, hills and pits on it.
