NASA is winning the hearts of people almost every day now. Earlier they amused everyone when they tweeted to Marvel and offered to help Tony Stark.
Now they are back with something bigger and pretty serious.
NASA’s InSight is finally on Mars and they have shared the first selfie on social media which was taken by InSight through its 5.9-feet long robotic arm with a camera.
NASA shared the selfie and wrote-
First #selfie! I’m feeling healthy, energized and whole. This is me on #Mars.

The fact that there's blacked out parts has me all, "what's going on there?"

The mosaic is a selfie of 52 images and looks pretty interesting.
From here, the InSight will start studying the Red Planet and among the most important things that it will study is Marsquakes. It will also conduct geology experiments there with the help of three crucial instruments like Heat flow probe, Seismometer and Antennae.
Isn’t that exciting?
