Scientists have taken more than a thousand photographs taken by the Curiosity rover from November 24 to December 1, 2019 to create a wide panorama.
It consists of 1.8 billion pixels. By turning on the video below, you can see this panorama with your own eyes.
The last such panorama was compiled and published by NASA in 2018 based on images taken by the rover from the top of the Vera Rubin ridge at an altitude of about 327 meters.
Curiosity is a car-sized rover designed to explore Mars. The rover’s goals include an investigation of the Martian climate and geology; assessment of whether the Mars has ever offered environmental conditions favorable for microbial life, including investigation of the role of water; and planetary habitability studies in preparation for human exploration.
