NASA spacecraft 'InSight' posts selfie from Mars

A NASA spacecraft joined the selfie game Tuesday. 

NASA InSight posted an update from Mars on its Twitter account saying it is feeling healthy, energized and whole. 

The spacecraft took the "selfie" with a camera located on its robotic arm. The photo is a mosaic comprised of 11 individual images. 

InSight was launched on May 5, 2018, and landed on Mars six months later on Nov. 26. Its mission is to study the early evolution of terrestrial planets like Mars.
