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.

Total solar eclipse. My one-star review. Haha. Get it? I've traveled the world, seen the Great Pyramids, climbed more than halfway up Everest, seen a wild Bengal tiger, and so much more. But truly a total solar eclipse was the most amazing, mind-blowing, skin-tingling thing I've ever seen.
Aboard the Perseverance is my name, "Scott Stoll," engraved on a silicon chip. Does that make me an astronaut? Are dreams written in stone — or silicon? Can Martians read? 
You can visit Mars right from your own home or backyard in more ways than one. Yes! Seriously.
