Spacecraft Portraiture



This is a spectacular image.

This is a view of Curiosity* descending toward the surface while the parachute was still attached. What is mind-blowing is that this photo was taken by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. A spacecraft orbiting Mars took a picture of another spacecraft descending! Science! :)

*technically not the mission name but how everyone knows it
