Mars Panorama – Curiosity rover: Martian solar day 647 in out-of-this-world

Here’s the latest interactive panorama via panoramacist Andrew Bodrov from imagery taken by the Curiosity Mars at Gale Crater, from Sol 647 (May 1, 2014).

The images for panorama were obtained by the rover’s 34-millimeter Mast Camera. The mosaic, which stretches about 30,000 pixels width, includes 134 images, all taken on Sol 647.

You can see previous interactive panoramas from Andrew of of Curiosity’s images here.

And in case you missed it, here’s Curiosity’s latest “Selfie”:

    Wowie! This panorama is the next best thing to actually being there! I REALLY like zooming all the way out to take in closer views of the distant mountains. They add a seemingly earthly/familiar scale to the vista…

    Fantastic with zoom try looking at the wheels you can really see the damage with holes in the aluminium they must re-engineer these wheels for future missions they are (for sure) the week point on this magnificent machine…

    Am I the only one wondering where the arm is that takes that selfie? No shadow or indication about an arm going out of the pictuer, you see it’s full body in there.

      Because the selfie is actually stitched together from many selfies, they can choose portions of photos that don’t have the arm in them.

    Thanks Nancy; very good and informative image… Mars seems covered with very sharp stone pieces… We would have inspected the Curiosity for free, if we were allowed…!
