This futuristic black and white image was taken yesterday by one of the navigation cameras on NASA's Curiosity rover. Engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab are wiggling front left wheel in the Mars gravel as vehicle gets ready to start out on its first test drive soon.
The dots on the wheel stand for JPL, because NASA won't let the lab attach its logo. And though the pic is low res, it's inspiringly beautiful. Who knew Ansel Adams was on board? [NASA via @AlexisMadrigal]
