Mars Panorama - Curiosity rover
Out of this World

NASA's Mars Exploration Program (source images: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Malin Space Science Systems)

With its rover named Curiosity, Mars Science Laboratory mission is part of NASA's Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort of robotic exploration of the red planet. Curiosity was designed to assess whether Mars ever had an environment able to support small life forms called microbes. In other words, its mission is to determine the planet's "habitability."

This panorama was released 23.08.2012 and updated 30.08.2012

I have enhanced colors to be corresponded with colors used by NASA:

This is very hi-resolution panorama 30000x15000 pixels. I used to stitch it 138 source images (1200x1200px) from the 34-millimeter Mast Camera on NASA's Curiosity rover.

More About Out of this World

The planet Earth has proven to be too limiting for our awesome community of panorama photographers. We're getting an increasing number of submissions that depict locations either not on Earth (like Mars, the Moon, and Outer Space in general) or do not realistically represent a geographic location on Earth (either because they have too many special effects or are computer generated) and hence don't strictly qualify for our Panoramic World project.But many of these panoramas are extremely beautiful or popular of both.So, in order to accommodate our esteemed photographers and the huge audience that they attract to 360Cities with their panoramas, we've created a new section (we call it an "area") called "Out of this World" for panoramas like these.Don't let the fact that these panoramas are being placed at the Earth's South Pole fool you - we had to put them somewhere in order not to interfere with our Panoramic World.Welcome aboard on a journey "Out of this World".
