Amazing 1.3 Billion Pixel Image of Mars Surfacezoom in

NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover has provided a giant 1.3 billion pixel image of the surface of Mars. Well, the panorama was stitched together by Bob Deen of the Multi-Mission Image Processing Laboratory at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif, where the mission is managed on a daily basis. The resulting image is a full-circle view that was created by combining nearly 900 images taken by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover, generating a panorama with 1.3 billion pixels in the full-resolution version.

Visit the NASA site where you can see this image with full pan and zoom controls as well as the cylindrical viewer. Or you can click on the Photosynth image below and begin looking around Mars yourself immediately.
