Zoom in towards the south east, It looks like a Groundhog poking his head out, Just behind the rise about a 300 yards out looking straight towards the Rover.

Both Opportunity and Curiosity used the same 50+ year old rocket design.

Wow that's a long trip LOL

Thanks Steve very interesting stuff. I am a strong believer of funding NASA more. Maybe they would invest some money to redesign that rocket system. Imagine if we stuck to the same TVs, Refrigerators and Cars of 50 years ago?

Wow!! Pause it and zoom al the way in

August 8 2012, 10:19 PM 

I did zoom in but got too distracted by the near in focus parts of the lander itself. I wonder why the "wiring" on the panels is so exposed Anyway, I could spend spend all day "roving" zoomed in and panning and tilting with my mouse.
I just got a new laptop with HDMI output(for 1080p viewing on HDTV). Can't wait to go to work tomorrow and pay this back on the 47" LG. BTW, Radio Shack now has a USB to HDMI breakout box if'n anybody wants to do the same with an older laptop. Resolution will be determined by the video card in your computer. It is Sku 150-0397 and $59.99 but goes on sale for $10 less about ever third week.

Absolutely amazing.....

Those are some stunning pictures and the ability to pan around and zoom in makes it almost seem like you are exploring mars yourself. Just frickin' cool as hell. Thanks to all those who worked so hard to make it possible. Did anyone else notice the green and blue looking aura in one of those pics? Almost looked like some kinda martian gas coming out of the ground but it was actually some kinda light reflection in the camera lense I suppose hehehe kept expecting to see marvin the martian peek his helmet out from behind some of those rocks hehehe...peace
