Virtual View of Mars!



Times have certainly changed from the days of the moon landing, when we were privy to live footage on our TVs. Now, with the obvious progression of technology, we can take a virtual tour in space just by going on the internet. With NASA’s Curiosity rover, and Panographer Andrew Bodrov, we have the privilege of seeing what the rover sees on Mars. Bodrov stitched together photographs sent from the rover and created a very detailed 360 degree view of the Mars surface. You can zoom in and out, as well as rotate left and right. Let’s just hope they’re not on Verizon’s 5GB plan because I’m sure the overage charges will kill their budget!
