Curiosity Snaps An Incredible 1.8-Billion Pixel Panorama of Mars

Wow.

Mars Panorama
The most high-depth photo of the red planet yet.

NASA’s rover on Mars, named Curiosity, has snapped an incredible 1.8-Billion pixel photograph. 

According to NASA’s Mars Exploration Program: “NASA’s Curiosity rover captured its highest-resolution panorama yet of the Martian surface between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, 2019. A version without the rover contains nearly 1.8 billion pixels; a version with the rover contains nearly 650 million pixels. Both versions are composed of more than 1,000 images that were carefully assembled over the following months.” 

This incredible photo capturing the rocky surface of our red-rock neighbor took months for NASA scientists to compile, but the end results are simply amazing. 

The photos are a reminder to the explorer in all of us, of why we are argonauts. 

I highly recommend checking out NASA’s Mars Exploration page, where they have uploaded the full images with an interaction feature.
