    Andrew, at first didn't understand the info. Anyway, this job make us feel like if we were on the surface of mars. I also would love to see a video (from Curiosity) showing how an object drops from the robotic arm to the surface in real time. (NASA shows no video !)

    Daniel: yes, please check description of panorama.

    Amazing and terrific images ! It seems to be a mixing of Curiosity images taken during day (darkened) with images taken by Observatory of the Milky Way. May be ?

    We see on top the light of the center of our galaxy, Via Lactea, almost covered by other galaxy’s arm. We cannot see it from earth

    I've a kind of noob question, but I'm wondering who actually made this panorama? O.o if it is a self photograph then I'm failed to observe any shadow,shaft or supportive rode for the camera making this panorama itself...

    WoW!!! When I zommed in the sky I could find the moon Phobos at the left side of Milky way a little bit over the horizon. Unbelievable!

    Never imagined the Milky Way had such 'dust lanes'! Breathtakingly beautiful.

    Absolutely incredible and so beautiful. One of the most amazing sites I've ever seen

    They are exactly that, 2 small drill holes made by Curiosity Rover as it sampled rocks for some of the onboard experiments.
  • Christian_Rooibos over 1 year ago
    Have you seen on the floor close to rover like two holes? What are they?

    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".
