‘Curiosity’ returns photos from surface of Mars

NASA’s rover ‘Curiosity’ has survived a harrowing journey to Mars and has lived to tweet about it, as its engineers celebrated back home. Only minutes after touchdown, the rover’s cheerful Twitter account began posting photos, saying, “No photo or it didn’t happen? Well lookee here.”

This image released by NASA on Wednesday Aug. 8, 2012 taken by cameras aboard the Curiosity rover shows the Martian horizon. It's one of dozens of images that will be made into a panorama.
