PASADENA, Calif. — The mysterious Mars photo has been solved.
A NASA engineer said Friday he’s pretty sure a Curiosity rover camera caught the rocket stage crashing in the distance after it landed in Gale Crater Sunday night.
A grainy, black-and-white picture taken about 40 seconds after landing shows a plume of dust in the distance. It’s not visible in a picture taken nearly an hour later.
