Now that the amazing Mars Curiosity rover has landed safely on the Red Planet, NASA is starting to get back data from the robot. The first black and white images came in early yesterday, and today we get the first color photo: a burnt orange vista showing the outer wall of the Gale Crater, which the rover will soon explore. The image is blurred because the camera still has a dust cover on it that protected the lens during landing. In a week or two, NASA will remove the dust cover and start to take even more gorgeous photos. Someone make Curiousity an Instagram account.
