Curiosity’s First Year On Mars In A Whirlwind Two-Minute Timelapse

It’s hard to believe it, but Curiosity has been out there roving the Red Planet for almost a year already. And like any good space vehicle, it has been meticulously documenting its every step(?). That’s a lot of documentation, so here’s the quick version: 12 months in two minutes. Ready? Go.

We’ve seen one timelapse like this before, but it was a bootleg job, assembled by a fan from just nine months of photos. This one is the real deal straight from JPL. Too bad Curiosity doesn’t actually move that fast. Otherwise we’d have found some martians by now.
