Introductions, Rules, Announcements, and Feedback
I am trying to judge how prevalent this Curiosity image has been previously through the general press exposure. This is a quick poll listed for only about half a day on the general APOD page: http://apod.nasa.gov/
. For completeness, the image being asked about is
on this permalink APOD page: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap120811.html
Thanks for your indulgence!

It was on the TV news.
Now how many have seen the - oh I don't know - Farmer's insurance commercial where all the agents are on a roof? Or the Cadillac commercial where they're driving on a twisty mountain road? Probably 95%.
A better question: Given the poor quality of this image, why would anyone want to see it?

Great view. Can't wait for the higher res version. This pan was released to the mainstream media on about sol 3 and it is on the Curiosity home page.
I noticed it first on the MSL website

This particular image? Or one astonishingly like it? Yes, the CGI footage of Mars in Babylon5,
to which JPL were consultants.

I come here first when i want to look at the stars - usually at my desk at lunchtime. APOD rules!
Been browsing the MSL website ever since Curiosity's landing. Ready see much more like this. Given that there are few car washes on Mars, I hope we can continue to see great photos without dust obscuring the quality. Hoping the dust covers do there job on the cameras.
