A spectacular interactive panorama of images snagged by NASA’s Curiosity rover at Gale Crater has been produced by “panoramacist” Andrew Bodrov of 360cities.net.

Bodrov made use of images obtained by Curiosity’s Mast Camera.

A special tip of the space helmet visor goes to Nancy Atkinson, Universe Today’s Senior Editor, for posting about this unique panorama.
