Exploring the Landscape of Mars

NASA's Perseverance rover explored an area called Jezero Crater, where a mighty river once flowed -billions of years ago. The landscape image was generated from 1,118 pictures and comprises 2.5 billion pixels. We can't see them all in a video, but that's enough so that we can get a zoomed-in look at Betty's Rock, Skinner Ridge, and Hogwallow Flats. Perseverance is storing rock and soil samples that NASA plans on picking up and bringing back to earth sometime. The idea that it can transmit such gorgeous photos millions of miles back to earth is already mind blowing. Read more about this video at digitaltrends. (via Damn Interesting
