Aug. 7, 2012 — This just in: a new full-size image from Curiosity shows the rover's shadow with its mast "head" extended… hello, Curiosity!

The image above was taken with the rover's left Navcam, and also shows its branded plate and pixel-style "logo." Curiosity's Mastcam will be calibrated later today using a target image adhered to the rover body.
