Martian Panorama

Curiosity Rover has been sending back some amazing sights and sounds since its arrival on Barsoom on August 6. Here is a composite 3600 image of Gale Crater and the surrounding area. Amazing and beautiful.

Interactive panorama conversion: Hans Nyberg – Panoramas.dk Note that more sky has been added artificially by me in this interactive version.

This 360-degree panorama was released Aug 27 2012.It includes the highest part of Mount Sharp which is approximately 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the rover. The colors on this panorama are enchanced to give the same colors as it would have under lights on earth.

All it needs is a beach to be the perfect vacation spot.
