NASA releases stunning 360-degree interactive video of Mars

Made from multiple images stitched together, it includes a view of the downwind face of the Namib Dune about 23 feet away from the camera and rising up about 16 feet, NASA said.

The images were taken on December 8, 2015, by a camera on NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover during the 1,197th sol (or Martian day) of its work on the planet. One sol is about 40 minutes longer than an earth day.

Posted to the YouTube channel of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Curiosity’s full spectrum point of view from the “Namib Dune” shows off the potential unmanned missions equipped with impressive cameras can have for virtual space travel.
