Panoramic Images Captured By NASA’s Curiosity Rover.
Ever since the Curiosity rover landed on Mars on August 6, 2012, the robot has beamed thousands of images back to Earth. Utilizing the rovers many cameras, NASA takes a series of images and stitches them into a large ultra high resolution image for further studying. Thankfully these images are released to the public for viewing. Below are various panoramic images Curiosity and the team at NASA have put together. There is a bonus panorama that was photoshopped to combine the mosaic image from Curiosity and the amazing nine-gigapixel image from the VISTA infrared survey telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory.
We combined the panoramic images and created an immersive 360-degree video that can be played on virtual reality headsets.
