NASA's InSight Just Snapped its First Ever Selfie on Mars and it is Out of this World

NASA's InSight Just Snapped its First Ever Selfie on Mars and it is Out of this World

'Hashtag wish you were here.'

While we may still be debating whether androids dream of electric sheep, artificial intelligence and robots amuse us every day with how human-like they are.

NASA's InSight is perhaps an example of just that. Last week, images from the lander showed its robotic arm ready to do some lifting and now, with a reach of nearly 6 feet (2 metres), the robot managed to flex its arm to snap a selfie.

'InSight' which is short for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport, is a Mars lander designed to give Mars its first thorough checkup, and study the planet's interior structure.

InSight, which landed on 26th November, took a picture of the surface first. Just like most tourists do when they go to a new place.

The selfie also seems like if it was something you saw while scrolling on Instagram, it wouldn't be out of place. Take a look.

People are also pretty amused.

InSight also responds much like an Instagram influencer would.

And while we may still be debating whether human-made technology is becoming more sentient or not, we certainly know that the InSight probably should have its own Instagram account soon.
