Default NASA's InSight spacecraft takes selfie after supersonic landing

Minutes after touching down on Mars, NASA's InSight spacecraft sent back a "nice and dirty" snapshot of its new digs. Yet the dust-speckled image looked like a work of art to scientists. The photo revealed a mostly smooth and sandy terrain around the spacecraft with only one sizable rock visible.

It's great that it's landed safely - this looks like being a really interesting mission!

The downside is that it happened too soon for Elon Musk to hitch a ride there like he wanted...
