A Year On Mars In Pictures
Yesterday I shared a beautiful image of Earth from outer space, so it only seems fair that today I bring you a collection of photos of Mars made right from the surface of the planet. It's been a year since NASA's Curiosity Rover landed on Mars, and what a year it's been. That little rover has been busy, thankfully, documenting its experience via several onboard cameras. This collection of images at The Atlantic shows everything from panoramic Martian landscapes (which look a lot like the desert Southwest of the United States) to detail shots of the surface of the planet before, during and after scientific experiments from the rover have taken place.
