Before & after: Curiosity at Rocknest and the Kimberley
Before & after: Curiosity at Rocknest and the Kimberley
 
At pivotal moments in her mission to Gale crater, Curiosity captures a self-portrait using the MAHLI camera at the end of her robotic arm. In the time separating her self-portraits at Rocknest (sol 84) and the Kimberley (sol 613), the rover has accumulated lots of dust and a few holes in her wheels.
