4 billion pixels panorama of Mars

The images for panorama obtained by the two rover's Mast Cameras:

  • Narrow Angle Camera (NAC), which has a 100 mm focal length
  • Medium Angle Camera (MAC), which has a 34 mm focal length

The mosaic, which stretches 90000x45000 pixels, includes 295 images from NAC taken on Sols 136-149 and 112 images from MAC taken on Sol 137.

    Check out my YouTube videos "Dead Martians" and "Mars RockNest Artifacts" you will see real dead martians and other Mars artifacts. I found them within the "Billion Pixel View from Curiosity at RockNest" panorama

  • DepUTee 10 months ago
    Go back to where you saw that and look straight up at the guy who fell down the hill, his head fell off above it. Looks also like maybe a child and a dog near by. What do you use to take snapshots?
  • DepUTee 10 months ago
    dumb ass.
  • DepUTee 10 months ago
    Look for the obvious fossilized animals, there are many. One area looks like a wharf with a ruined ship and an obvious round shiny bouy (sp?) with a loop on the top. See the many square cuts that look like doors in the bigger rocks. Look for teeth, spines and heads, some bodies are complete or sticking up out of the ground.
  • DepUTee 10 months ago
    This one is a mystery but it certainly does not look like a rock.

    original message to NASA... they never replyed.... On the magnificent billion pixels panoramic picture there is a dark object visible at maximum zoom above the left climbing slope of mount Sharp; I followed the slope of the mountain until I happen to go by and see it. Possible explanations: 1- A pixel malfunction/aberration 2- Flying object (?), 3- You guys have a drone checking out the final destination of curiosity and want to keep it secret (good idea) 4- Who knows!

    Looks like a something made tracks in a darkened long V area. The object to the left could have made the tracks, expired, leaked fluids and then dust covered the tracks from the V area to the now stationary object. Could it have been a life form once ?
  • pfitzger 10 months ago
    I have seen the same shaped black spot in multiple Images. My conclusion is its either dust on a lense or damaged image pixels.

    The rover was named curiosity for a reason...right. So, I was curious and found a black splotch on a rock. Anyone have an idea as to what it could be or might be? It looks like (oh...hold on, i have to kill this mosquito...okay) It looks like liquid or glass!

    Almost as amazing as roaming the surface of Mars with a very well equipped(HIGH DEF cameras!) and badass rover, are the "amazingly" retarded comments here on this page. From one end of the intelligence spectrum to the other. We humans are FKing brilliant enough to explore the solar system, yet ignorant enough to make the ridiculous claims and comments like those I've read here... ugh

  • Sean Tay 12 months ago
    People, please. There is no water or significant life on Mars' surface; although there may be microorganisms underground. There used to be water there: that's for certain, and maybe life, but probably not.

    to me it seems that various life forms have been "petrified". , that the entire organism instantly turned stone like....
  • xego about 1 year ago
    anyone know what this is? i think the rover was in that area, but not sure about the objects.
  • Thomas Langley about 1 year ago
    oh, and wth is this?
  • Thomas Langley about 1 year ago
    there are large scatterings of fossils. most are similar to dinosaur fossils, . specific shapes of individual bones, Haversian canals, fossils can be made from minerals that would turn out to be much more durable than the surrounding matrix material, therefore lasting much longer when natural rock has eroded away. check out the shape of some dinosaur bone fossils and then look back....
  • Bruce M Campbell about 1 year ago
    Why, once people have looked at this panorama, is there any further discussion about liquid water once being on Mars? The regolith is clearly sedimentary. The cracked slabs are so very familiar to anyone who has seen dried mud. There are ridges of sedimentary deposits everywhere. What other model of creating such geologic structures could possibly exist? Occam’s razor, anyone? Why all the breathy MSM headlines about liquid water on Mars?
  • AmericanMuse about 1 year ago
    Jeez! Those ads at the bottom of the panorama are quite annoying. Can't seem to remove them.

    I've checked again these black dots you marked as "Sasquatch" in the picture and they appear at roughly the same altitude. Could these be a grid of "reference" dots transmitted along with the picture? They appear to be the same size and color and equally distant!
  • Christmas Snow about 1 year ago
    There are three of these on the same mountain, roughly the same size and color. Few that are less conspicuous are seen elsewhere. Different rock, possibly meteorites.

    On the first triangular, flat segment of surface away from the rover, roughly pointed to by the "Y" in CURIOSITY, there are two features. One looks like a pair of headphones, and the other might be the same thing curled up to overlap the ends.

  • Christopher Carr about 1 year ago
    Yeah, if the nucleus hits Mars (which is really very unlikely), you lose the rovers. Definitely worth it, though, from a science perspective.
  • Todd Ruhter about 1 year ago
    Wow, just wow! I am almost sure I am not going to be around long enough to be able to step foot on Mars and I often worry I won't live long enough to see another human do it either but in the mean time, THANKS! Thanks NASA and JPL, thanks to the person or people who made this look at the surface available and in such stunning clarity! I am awed!
  • Jay Stern about 1 year ago
    This sure looks like sedimentary rock -- mudstone. No tilting to speak of so unlikely that there is or was tectonic activity on Mars. The location is supposed to be a crater, I believe. I would have expected to see glassy material resulting from heating from whatever hit. I'll bet there are fossils below the surface waiting to be found.
  • Mitzi Better Late about 1 year ago
    to the last sentence I can only say WOW and, these pictures are amazing.

    A couple of degrees off due North to the East, full zoom, beyond rock ledges in distant foreground, looks like a lynx or some kind of wildcat sunning himself...!
  • Molly Delaney about 1 year ago
    It's a basin. I can't tell what the scale is. 8 feet deep? Dried mud on the bottom.
  • Jeff about 1 year ago
    Wonderful job to the girls and guys involved in this project. Very cool to see another planet this way. Thank you.
  • Molly Delaney about 1 year ago
    Remember how little those rocks weigh. Moving water still has its full momentum laterally, but much less force holding it down. Get a foot deep of water in here and it will be roaring around, and push those rocks like balsa wood.
  • Bob B. about 1 year ago
    This is so wild. Thanks so much for posting this panoramic view. I hope this breathes new life into the space exploration program. I have spent hours perusing this and I have no plans of stopping.
  • Molly Delaney about 1 year ago
    It was a slosh zone. Think about how water would flow at low gravity. Then take the pressure down to nothing, and the temperature. The back of the picture is highland with chunks of broken apart igneous rock strewn all around. Plus a lot of windblown dust.
  • Molly Delaney about 1 year ago
    The drilling found mudstone sediment, weathered basalt sand, and about 20% gypsum (calcium sulfate sludge evaporated). Here's a couple things. Water on Mars still has its mass, so far as momentum, but only a fraction its Earth weight. Somewhat difficult to visualize. Shallow water flowing by gravity will creep slowly. Deep water once moving will have tremendous lateral force. Ocean storms on Mars would have been ferocious. Instead of waves lapping at a shoreline, it would be tidal waves roaring up and inundating vast shore areas. Another thing is the transition from high atmospheric pressure over time, to low pressure and low temperature. When most of the water evaporated out into space, it existed on the surface only as ice, which evaporated directly to vapor. The weathering, by water alternating with ice, which you see here, occurred with water acting differently than we are used to, and then went through a fairly rapid change in temperature and pressure over probably less than one billion years. Also there may have been no plate tectonics, which on Earth recycle surfaces. You may be looking at a site which has not changed, except for blowing dust, for 3 billion years.
  • qcubed about 1 year ago
    I would like to see it hit as well, but it would almost certainly mean the demise of Opportunity and Curiosity.

    Seventy cents per pixel. Finally, we are getting our money's worth. Keep up the good work Nasa and pray that comet doesn't hit Mars next year.
  • Igor about 1 year ago

  • Tommy Asselin about 1 year ago
    this black pixel anomaly repeats itself at regular intervals on a large part of the panorama, so its probably a dead pixel in the camera sensor.
  • ea1308 about 1 year ago
    its repeating horizontally in equal distances. seems to be dirt in/on the lens.
  • Santino Ortega about 1 year ago
    I dont understand how the big flat rock was displaced. Where did it come from? I dont see a correlating hole where the rock in the middle used to be, but it seems to obviously be a part of the substrate before displacement. Interesting..
  • Santino Ortega about 1 year ago
    Sediment, looks like an old mud bed washed over with loose soil. The shadows in the impression in the middle looks like someone peed there ha ha ha.
