Blow Through Nine Months Of Mars Roving Photos In Just One MInute

Since it touched down in August, Curiosity has been taking heaps of pictures. We’ve already seen some of the best shots, but there are hundreds more where that came from.

Fortunately, you can breeze through the whole nine months’ collection in just a minute.

YouTuber Karl Sanford took the whole big collection of all the black and white RAW photos Curiosity has shot with its front left hazcam since August 8 (Sol 0), the most recent dating back to just yesterday. The resulting timelapse is awesome, but a bit choppy because Curiosity can only send pictures back when an orbiter is overhead, so some of its data is still waiting on board.

Curiosity’s whole mission is 23 Earth months in total, so there are plenty more photos to come. And so long as those get thrown into a bite-sized video clip too, they’ll probably all be worth seeing. Keep on rovin’, little guy. [PetaPixel]
