Want to see a BILLION-pixel view of Mars from Curiosity?

Well, here you go. Don’t say I never gave you nothin’. 😉

Actually this is a NASA-produced image made of 850 frames taken by Curiosity’s MastCam, showing the view from the rover as of late October/early November 2012. Mount Sharp (Aeolis Mons) rises in the distance, and the mountainous rim of Gale Crater can be seen along the horizon. Click the image (or the previous link text) to see a pan-and-zoom 360-degree view.

And the total number of pixels? 1.3 billion. (But who’s counting?)
