Pasadena (US): NASA has received a flood of new black and white images from the Curiosity rover on Mars that it will stitch together to make a panorama.
The photos began pouring in today morning after the nuclear powered rover raised its camera equipped mast. The raw images reveal the rover`s shadow on the ground and the Martian horizon.

Curiosity has beamed home a steady stream of images since touching down Sunday, including the first colour view from the landing site.

Better views are expected over the next several days, including a colour panorama.

Curiosity is on a two year mission to examine whether the ancient Martian environment ever had conditions favourable for microbial life.
