By this point, we all know the tale of Curiosity rover and its extenstive trek to Mars. I’m not quite sure that nowadays NASA gets the esteem and credit they deserve. I hear the grown-folk tell tales of the moon landing and seems that a world-wild spectacle was being witnessed. We’ve of course been numbed to the excitement of the great unknown and the spectacle I remember really tuning into was the great O.J. Simpson chase, yea… things have changed. That was my moon landing.
So Curiosity made it, as we all assumed he or she would… I’m not quite sure what the sex of this roaming-bot is. I know hurricanes are females. Does the same rule apply to space? Regardless, one thing that’s exciting is the fact that we landed on Mars. We did it and of course, due to the great advances in technology since Neil Armstrong took that legendary step (R.I.P Neil Armstrong), we now have the capability to view high-res, interactive panoramic images from Curiosity, on Mars. Go ahead explore this arid world from the Mars rover’s point of view. As the journey progresses we will keep you posted on Curiosity in hopes of sparking your very own.
This color panorama below shows a 360-degree view of the landing site of NASA’s Curiosity rover, including the highest part of Mount Sharp, which is approximately 12 miles (20 kilometers) away from the rover.
