Curiosity's self-portrait at John Klein: interactive 3D panorama
An artistic combination of the sol 177 MAHLI self-portrait with the sols 170 and 176 Mastcam-34 panorama can be explored in an interactive 3D panorama.

This self-portrait of Curiosity combines 66 exposures taken by the rover's Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) during sol 177. At the bottom of this panorama is a hole in the rock. The drilling took place on February 8, 2013, or sol 182. The images for full panorama obtained by the rover's 34-millimeter Mast Camera. The mosaic, which stretches about 30,000 pixels width, includes 113 images taken on Sol 170 and an additional 17 images taken on Sol 176.
