The last paragraph of this article is a very technical description of how the website for the Curiosity rover is hosted. This information is not relevant to the rover itself and would only be understood by an IT professional or someone with a technical understanding of IT. Unless anyone disagrees here, I shall remove this section shortly. Savlonn (talk) 18:51, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
Support - It is of low relevance and it is certainly not an "award". Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 19:08, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
Support - *Entirely* ok with me to remove the section - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 19:17, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
A self-portrait by the Mars rover Curiosity on October 31, 2012. The mosaic is stitched from a set of 55 images taken by the Mars Hand Lens Imager at "Rocknest," the spot in Gale crater where the mission's first scoop sampling took place. Self-portraits such as this help NASA document the state of the rover and track changes, such as dust accumulation and wheel wear.

Is Curiosity the only rover to have a penny or other coin on board? And if so, does that make this the first exploratory lander (as opposed to non-landing space probe) to carry with it an image of a human being (Lincoln)? If so, this should definitely be noted here. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:55, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
