As it stands today, everyone has taken a selfie – even your grandma. And as cool as your grandma’s selfies may be, they’ll never stack up to the space selfies taken by astronauts and especially not the Mars Rover selfies.
Astronaut selfies are particularly inspiring because they not only show the breadth of human exploration, they also show that no matter how much of an egghead you are, everyone likes taking selifes. Even more to that point, the Mars Rover’s selfies are examples of mechanical and artistic beauty.
Whether or not you’re someone whose heartstrings are pulled whenever you watch movies like WALL-E, seeing a few rover selfies will make you believe that John F. Kennedy was on to something when he decided we should go to the moon.
