It's only been there for a month, but Curiosity has already left its mark on Mars.
On Thursday NASA released a photo that shows tracks made by the car-sized rover on the surface of the Red Planet. The rover is the shiny, light reflecting square in the right portion of the picture; the tracks are the double lines trailing behind it.
Curiosity is also responsible for the two dark marks in the center of the photo, NASA explained in a statement: They were formed when the rover landed and blew the red dust that covers much of the planet away, revealing the darker basaltic sand underneath.
The photo was taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE), a camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance orbiter. So in other words, this picture was taken from space.
