This cool space wallpaper is part of a mosaic of images from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity, which shows Mount Sharp in a white-balanced color adjustment that makes the sky look overly blue but shows the terrain as if under Earth-like lighting. The component images were taken during the 45th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's mission on Mars (Sept. 20, 2012). Image released March 15, 2013.See Curiosity's latest photos here.
