It looks like NASA’s InSight lander has channeled its inner Millennial and sent back a selfie from Mars. To be fair, it isn’t exactly a single image, but rather a combination of up to 11 images taken using the spacecraft’s robotic arm. Mars.nasa.gov notes that this is the same imaging process used by NASA’s curiosity mission, in which multiple overlapping images are stitched together to create a single image. InSight’s selfie also gives researchers a clear image of the landers solar panel and its entire deck, including its collection of scientific instruments.
