If you think selfies are a trend just here on Earth, then you're definitely mistaken. It appears that the trend of selfies has reached as far as up to Mars, where NASA's Curiosity Rover has succumbed to the self-obsession.
Check out this 'selfie' that the robot took on Mars, as released by NASA recently. It was, of course, a number of different photos, which have been cropped and rearranged to exclude the robotic arm. Scroll down, and check it out!
Here's the high-definition selfie taken by Curiosity Rover, as released by NASA.
The robot has been sent to study Mars. Here's a labelled picture of the selfie showing 18,000 feet tall Mount Sharp in the distance and the rim of the Gale Crater.
You can even see the hole and sample hole drilled by Curiosity on the Red Planet.
Even the tire tracks are visible on the red sand.
Curiosity has sent three selfies in the past. This one is the first, which was taken 84 days after landing on Mars' surface.
This photo shows the rock samples the rover had explored.
This third selfie was taken in April 2014 next to sandstone rocks.
