The first (fake) photo from the Curiosity rover
The first image (above) transmitted by the Curiosity rover from Mars was kind of blurry and unexciting. So the folks on Twitter and Tumblr substituted a more dramatic shot (below). It's circulating with the caption: "NASA just landed a rover on Mars, this is the very first picture. This JUST happened minutes ago."
It actually is a picture of Mars, but it was taken by the Mars Spirit rover in 2005. (link: gawker.com

Nice to see that THIS mission was chopped off like the rest of them were!
