NASA’s Curiosity rover has taken an awesome and gorgeous, one-of-a-kind "belly selfie" while undertaking the strenuous Buckskin drill campaign at the Martian mountain base and celebrating the third anniversary since arriving on the Red Planet.

This low-angle self-portrait of NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover shows the vehicle at the site from which it reached down to drill into a rock target called Buckskin. The MAHLI camera on Curiosity’s robotic arm took multiple images August 5, 2015, that were stitched together into this selfie.
