The Curiosity Robot of NASA spent nearly 10 years exploring Mars alone. Although on Mars, curiosity has observed many amazing sites, including the latest panoramic photos that have just been sent to Earth.

Since landing on March in August 2012, curiosity has not stopped exploring its new home to collect scientific data and superb photos. Recently, curiosity circled the assembly, a mountain that forms the main summit of scabies.

 

As usual, at the end of his curiosity of the trip always takes panoramic photos of 360 degrees. But the curiosity of the view has seen this time was too special that his team ordered the Rover takes two photos a day.

 

"The mission team was so inspired by the beauty of the landscape, they combined two versions of a black and white photo of different periods and color added to create a rare postcard from the red planet," said The laboratory team of the propulsion of NASA a statement. (28/11/2021).


This photo was taken over Mont Sharp on November 16, 2021. Curiosity was ordained to take two photos, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

The NASA JPL team then combined these two black and white photos in a mosaic and added orange, blue, and green colors. The blue color represents the view in the morning, the orange color for the day view and the green color as a combination of both.

 

Mount Sharp, which is currently a stopover of curiosity, is 5.5 km above the surface of the crater of Gale. The tip of the crater can be seen on the horizon at a distance of about 30 to 40 km from curiosity.

 

In the center of the photo, we can see a dune of sand named "Sables de Forvie". On the far right, you can see a rock called Mount Rafael Navarro, named after a deceased member of the curiosity team.

 

Curiosity landed in a crater to search for possible signs of life in the region. So far, the Rover has found traces of lakes and rivers.

 

In nearly 10 years on March, curiosity traveled 26 km and shows no sign of stop of time soon. This robot also climbed at a height of 460 meters above the habit of landing originally.
