An Immersive Martian Panorama Photograph

Last week I mentioned a few of my favorite Mars rover links. If only this one had been available at the time! It’s an interactive 360-degree panorama of the Curiosity rover’s Martian landing site. And it’s so unbelievably great! It provides a different way of experiencing the red planet, heightening that feeling of "you’re really there" in a way that no amount of still photos can quite accomplish. I can only imagine that once we start seeing actual video from the planet that the feeling will be even more heightened. It’s yet another reminder of what an amazing technological age in which we’re living.
