Now that it's been on Mars for about two months, the Curiosity rover is starting to get comfortable. So comfortable, in fact, it decided to take some time out from sending us breathtaking images and discovering ancient riverbeds to hop on Foursquare and send the first check-in from the Red Planet. Curiosity checked in from the Gale Crater and posted the above image with the line: "One check-in closer to being Mayor of Mars."

How soon before it starts tweeting?
