360 Cities has published a rather breath-taking Gigapixel panoramic image of Mars that was taken by the Curiosity rover.
Estonian photographer Andrew Bodrov helped with the creation of the image and is one of the most detailed views of the planet to date. Apparently, the image is a four-billion-pixel panorama. Just think about it–those images needed to be shot, and then beamed over many miles from Mars to Earth, and then assembled. It was probably worse than the dial-up days. It’s quite exciting though as it looks like basically a desert and brings back memories of the movies Red Planet and Dune.
Check out the panorama after the jump.
