The First colour 360-Degree Panorama Of Gale Crater On Mars

New pictures of Mars from NASA’s Curiosity rover keep rolling in. Here’s the first 360-degree panorama in colour of Gale Crater, the 96-mile-wide landing site of Curiosity. The panorama is based on a series of images taken by the rover’s Mast Camera. It took a little over an hour to stitch together 130 very small images. The jagged black patches are missing thumbnails that would show the rest of the rover.
