On April 04, 2011 I was asked to shoot NASA’s new Mars rover “Curiosity” at the Pasadena NASA JPL lab for BoingBoing.net, in the first and only “public” (media, invite only) unveiling. Turned out to be a fine idea… so far the photos have been picked up by BoingBoing (complete photo gallery and Xeni’s interview with Ashwin Vasavada), MSNBC (scroll to the slideshow at the bottom of the story; a few interspersed are mine), Gizmodo, Engadget, CrunchGear and The Daily ([dead link] the Friday April 08 2011 issue).
Here's my gallery. Enjoy!
