A new fantastic panorama of Mars has been released by Curiosity! Watch the video in 8k

The panorama taken by NASA’s Curiosity rover dates back to August 19 and shows the planet Mars in very high resolution.

The Curiosity spacecraft continues its ongoing exploration of the red planet Mars. The rover was launched on November 26, 2011 and landed on Mars on August 6, 2012. Shortly after landing, it began transmitting images from the surface. The duration of the mission was expected to be at least one Sol year (about two Earth years). But it is still continuing with the goal of exploring the past and present capacity of Mars to support life.

Photographic equipment for the rover

The Curiosity spacecraft is equipped with several cameras with an impressive range of resolution, one of which is the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI). Located at the end of the rover’s robotic arm, MAHLI can be positioned near the surface to take high-resolution images of grains within loose soil and rock. MAHLI can determine the size, shape and color of individual grains of sand no larger than those found on a beach here at Land.
