Who took this photo?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I was just reading this bbc article about curiosity and then noticed the photo. Take a look and see if you can figure out how this was taken.

Its a composite made up from different photos from different cameras hence the reason you cant see the arm of a camera taking the photo as it was excluded from the composite.

It was apparently stitched together from multiple images with the camera arm in different positions allowing it to edited out. That, or it was actually taken by someone in the warehouse in Arizona where they're actually keeping it whilst they pretend the mission is progressing. Or it was aliens :)

It was done the same way as you get a picture of yourself in any tourist spot, you ask a kindly passing local inhabitant to hold the camera and take a shot of you.

Buy yourself a C14 and wait until Mars is at its closest approach next year and I reckon you might just be in with a shot :)

You start getting some good Luminosity but then Curiosity moves and you have to start all over again!
