Emotions were sky high after NASA's rover Curiosity successfully landed on Mars on Aug. 6, 2012, and the world continues to watch in fascination as the rover beams back images of the Martian surface.
The first high-resolution color image of the Mars landscape came a little more than a day after the rover landed. It shows a distant view of the north wall and rim of Gale Crater, which NASA has said is about the size of Connecticut and Rhode Island combines. The lens is still covered by a dust cover, which is why the image is murky; the dust cover will be removed in about a week.
