On Curiosity rover takes high-resolution self-portrait on Mars news story (161 comments in total)

One remarkable thing that no-one has commented on- there are no foreground/background mismatches due to parallax. That means that the arm was manipulated to point the camera in 55 different directions while keeping the optical center of the camera in the same 3-dimensional location. Quite a technical tour de force! I can never get that right with Photosynth...
