Amazing Images From Curiosity!

The Curiosity Mars Lander has landed with huge success, and in just a few short days since then, we are seeing some amazing photos coming back from the lander itself, as well as some very cool additions from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter circling high above.  The website ( NASA – Mars Science Laboratory, the Next Mars Rover) has some great updated graphics, but for the time being, here are a few very cool ones!
