And I thought my 20-shot panos were extreme... this one from NASA of a Mars landscape stitches together 817 shots!!!

Excellent shot and technical achievement. I've been following these probes for years now. Hard to believe actually. One of my favorite shots was of a Martian sunset.

Indeed it does. What's really interesting in this shot is that the sky is red except for near the sun where it's blue. It's sort of an opposite of the Earth. Very cool really. I've always felt that this shot really says that this view is from another planet.

Some aliens have locked it up in the core of the planet. But they also built a large device which can release the lake and make the Mars atmosphere breathable. The device is just waiting for a rebel human to come along and activate it.

That was a great movie with so many memorable scenes.
I loved how Sharon Stone went all psycho on poor Arnie; he just didn't get it.

Wow. That is really cool! I remember seeing some of the first Mars shots from the rover several years ago and being just blown away. Thanks for sharing!

thanks for sharing! I used to be a space nut as a kid and devoured every news clipping, encyclopedia(remember those?), photo i could find about space and the mars probes at that time. the quality of the latest images is fantastic. Not sure they applied a rule of thirds to this framing, but i am willing to overlook that, lol.
