A Rover’s 3-Year Drive Across Mars

Here’s a look at the Opportunity rover’s three-year trek across 20 km (13 miles) of Meridiani Planum on Mars, using the unique vantage point of the rover itself. During the drive from Victoria Crater to Endeavour Crater, rover planners captured a horizon photograph at the end of each drive. 309 images taken during the journey appear in this video.

  1. Fabulous. I’d love to see a simultaneous map tracing out the path where in the landscape Opportunity was located and showing which direction it was facing!
