NASA Curiosity Mars Rover makes a 360-degrees panorama at Namib Dune (interactive)

Posted on Thursday, February 11 2016 @ 14:46:29 CET by


NASA's Curiosity rover created a stunning 360-degrees view of the Bagnold Dune Field at Mars, showing off the northwestern flank of Mount Sharp.
This view of the downwind face of "Namib Dune" on Mars covers 360 degrees, including a portion of Mount Sharp on the horizon. (Note: If you are using Safari, try a different browser. YouTube's 360 player so far does not support Safari). The site is part of the dark-sand "Bagnold Dunes" field along the northwestern flank of Mount Sharp. Images taken from orbit indicate that dunes in the Bagnold field move as much as about 3 feet (1 meter) per Earth year.

The component images of this scene were taken on Dec. 18, 2015, by the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover during the 1,197th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars.
You can watch it in the YouTube clip below, you can use your mouse to pan the view around, but it's probably best yo click through to the YouTube page to explore it full-screen in high quality.
