Imagine standing on Mars

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to stand on Mars? Now you don’t have to thanks to this month’s featured Argonaut, the Curiosity Rover.

NASA has created an image from Mars unlike anything you’ve seen. It’s a 360-degree virtual panorama that you can control. Just click and grab to look all around, and make sure you are using the full-screen, HD option.

Pictured is the “Namib Dune” which may be as close as I will ever get to Mars to standing on Mars.
