New 3D Panorama from Mars

This lovely 3D panorama, which was made by photographer Andrew Bodrov, is a stitched-together collection of photos taken by the Mars Curiosity rover. It’s a desolate image, but still immersive and a bit magical.

From a related Wired article:

“The best way to enjoy it is to go into fullscreen mode and slowly soak up the scenery — from the distant high edges of the crater to the enormous and looming Mount Sharp, the rover’s eventual destination.”

Don’t forget to pan up and check out that dismal-looking sun, too, which as of this posting is only managing to heat the surface to a few degrees above freezing, with a daily low of about -70 °C (-94 °C).
