Unfortunately it appears as if Curiosity’s second day on the Red Planet appeared uneventful; at least NASA didn’t really reveal much. The first day was mostly health checks, but we do know that the mast has been raised as the first color photo from Mars showed up early yesterday. NASA says about 5MB (yes) of data was sent back by the rover on its first day, which was relayed by the two satellites we have orbiting the planet right now.
The other big thing revealed on its second day is the above image taken from the MRO that shows where Curiosity landed, but also where all of the other parts of the lander ended up. You can see all of the parts scattered around the rover, including the sky crane that flew itself to a safe distance away.
As the first color image from the rover was blurry, people are complaining. What they don’t understand was that the dust cover was still on the mastcam, which is what caused that. Once they remove the dust cover, we’re going to get some impressive panoramic images. Those should hopefully show up tomorrow.
