how does it take a self portrait? in the picture there is nothing that explains this...would there be an arm at the side of the image?

perhaps a duck face and a peace sign since that's protocol for a self portrait.

The 1-ton Curiosity rover took 55 hi-res pictures with its Mars Hand Lens Imager camera, or MAHLI, on Oct. 31. Mission scientists then stitched the images together to create a full-color mosaic of Curiosity and its Gale Crater landing site.

I don't care how many pictures it stitched together. It's impossible. There would not be enough data because the camera on the arm could never succeed in capturing itself. It could rotate all around itself 360 degrees and never capture itself. The picture is a fake.

Double Dumb-Ass on you fucktard.

First of all, chill the fuck out, dude.
I'm sitting at work browsing my favourite forum, trying to contribute. As I said, I know fuck all about space missions, not even space programme rovers. Let me get this right, you're saying that MAHLI is visible in this photo? That would sure be impossible to perform, I agree. From my understanding, there is no MAHLI visible in this photo, just like the arm is not visible. But if I'm wrong, well fuck you if I'm wrong, you're the rude asshole here.

I don't necessarily believe it, actually it's hard to believe without being there. I am not a photoshop specialist, neither an expert in rovers structure and accessories. I just didn't see the problem with putting the robotic arm to the left, than to the right while keeping the camera in the same position, then overlay the images. But ok, I did not realize at this point that the same camera that took those 55 images is visible in the composition. Now I can go with the story of this being pure bullshit.
On another note, I heard someone saying "If we have a rover on Mars then we definitely should have like a bunch of HD webcams on the Moon by now."

Actually if you look closely in photoshop it is a reflection of a lens, nothing behind the lens though. I'm not sure if it setup a tripod of some sort to take the picture or what. Very strange none the less.

In the above photo you can see where the arm is mounted.

The self-portrait is a composite and they were able to edit out the arm. They left the shadow of the APXS and MAHLI.

Here is a picture of the MAHLI taken by the MAST cam:

Most of those wires need to move so they can't be put in conduit, but I agree, should be in a protective flex at least, pretty vunerable.

Composite Photo of arm of the MAHLI:

[link to www.jpl.nasa.gov]

Now imagine what it would look like if composite-part of the picture in the lower center was taken when the arm was moved out of the picture. It would look like the Mahli was floating in space.

Composite pictures with moveable arms sometimes necessarily edit out the arm because it has moved to multiple different positions and would obscure the desired image.

Not that 99% of you brianless morans could ever understand.

 Quoting: MuzzleBreak


I waited a good ten minutes for that page to load, and saw just what I expected to see:

AN ARM ATTACHED TO THE ROVER, HOLDING THE CAMERA.

No matter where you move that arm, it's STILL ATTACHED TO THE ROVER. No matter where you position the camera, THERE WILL STILL BE PART OF THE ARM VISIBLE. You cannot get rid of it no matter HOW MANY ANGLES YOU USE, without 'shopping it out, and if you do that, you must SAY SO. It will NEVER look like the MAHLI was floating in space, because there will be the base of the arm sticking out from the rover to the edge of the frame.

Speaking of morans, did you not once read the parts where I said "If NASA 'shopped it, they have to say so, or we can never trust them".

ADDED: IF this were a PANORAMA, the arm would have to be edited, and NASA would have to say so. BUT IT IS NOT A PANORAMA. It is a gazillion still shots from ONE ANGLE, taken in many rows and columns.
