PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The Curiosity rover has returned another postcard from Mars — the first 360-degree color view from Gale Crater. Since landing Sunday night, NASA’s six-wheel rover has been sending home a trickle of pictures, beginning with grainy, black-and-white photos. It also beamed back a low-quality video showing the last few minutes of its descent to the surface. It recently raised its mast containing high-resolution and navigation cameras that have given scientists a better view of the landing site. Curiosity is on a two-year mission to study whether Gale ever had conditions favorable for microbial life.
