the Panorama that Nasa recently released from Curiosity consists of over 1000 images that are put together to one.
– This is an incredibly stylish image. It is to get goosebumps, ” says Mars geologist Hans Erik Foss Amundsen.
He has even worked for Nasa, and tested in his time in Svalbard, a couple of the instruments that Curiosity has with him.
the Images from the March were taken over four days at the end of november last year. 1.8 billion pixels provides a tremendous depth and detail. In order to ensure that the light in the 1000 images were the same, all taken between at 12 and 14 local Mars time.
The u.s. space agency has since spent a lot of time putting the pictures together for the panorama now we can see.
This is the first time in the course of the mission that we take the time to create a 360-degree panoramic image, ” says Ashwin Vasavada from NASA.

NASA On Mars for over eight years
The unmanned rover is designed landed safely on March 6. august 2012. The trip from earth took over eight months.
the Vehicle is about the size of a car, and the goal of Curiosity is to investigate the climate and geology on the planet.
Next year get the Curiosity company on the March. Then it will roll two unmanned vehicles among the rocks and kratrene. The plan is for the new rover is designed to Nasa land in jezero is-the crater 18. February 2021.
NASA HAS MADE VIDEO: See the landscape as Curiosity is running around in.
a View back in time
Robotkjøretøyet to Nasa is located on a hill down in the huge Gale crater. In the distance shows the photo to the edge of the crater.
– the Image from Curiosity is incredibly meticulous, and is a snapshot from the dawn of time, ” says Amundsen.
He believes the details of the picture in many ways makes it possible to look back in time at the March. The geologist says the teams and the sediments in the berg and stone is a kind of tape recorder through the millions and millions of years. Here we can read much of the history of the naboplaneten our.
Mars is changing very slowly. Here, there is minimal erosion, which wears down the landscape. Amundsen tells the small therefore have occurred with the appearance of the planet in four billion years.
