Curiosity Beams First Color Image from Mars

Curiosity Beams First Color Image from Mars. Awesome! But I must confess: I’m looking forward to Curiosity’s first color image with its lens cap removed.

Yeah, I know the cap is clear, but it has dust on it that was kicked up during Curiosity’s landing. I suspect the view will be much nicer when they remove the cap.
