NASA has published a panoramic-vista of the view of Mars from Curiosity (the lander that is investigating the surface of Mars). It contains a billion pixels!
(Cylindrical Viewer, White-Balanced, for full-screen)
It is absolutely magnificent; I do not think that you would want to live there, but to be able to see the surface of another planet in such detail is (literally) out of this world. It is composed of a mosaic of (almost) 900 individual pictures taken by 3 different cameras, one of which is in black & white. The pictures were taken across a number of days (between October 5 and November 16, 2012), and the visibility differed on different days. It contains a total of 1.3 billion pixels (1,300,000,000).
It has snapshots of different things to look at (which auto-zoom in when you click on them - very cool). Here are one or two previews to whet your appetite:
A “bird-shaped rock”:
NASA says that this was done by wind-erosion, but of course we know better!
NASA says that this “looks like a flying saucer”. I think that they have been working too hard.
This is Curiosity’s ultimate destination. The caption says that it is 3 miles (5 km) high.
