This is the first colour photograph taken by the Curiosity rover sent by NASA. This photograph is taken with a new high-resolution camera called the Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) at the end of the rover’s robotic arm. This imaging device can resolve super-small details when the camera is up close to an interesting object.
