Mars Gigapixel Panorama – Curiosity rover: Martian solar days 136-149 in The World

Photographer and panoramacist Andrew Bodrov has again taken advantage of that old shutterbug, the Curiosity rover, and the images she’s taken of her surroundings. This huge new interactive panorama stretches across 90,000 x 45,000 pixels, and includes 295 images from the Narrow Angle Camera taken on Sols 136-149 and 112 images from Medium Angle Camera taken on Sol 137. Enjoy playing around and visiting Curiosity’s ‘hood. If you click the link below the pan, it will take you to the host website where the panorama spreads across your screen. Enjoy!

FYI, today is Sol 228 for Curiosity on Mars. Has it been that long already?

Bodrov is a photographer from Estonia who specializes in interactive panoramic photography. He did a Curiosity pan in February 2013 another in August 2012 and he’s also taken lots of images at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.
