Happy 5th Anniversary, Curiosity

Since August 5th, 2012, the Curiosity Rover has been roving the Red Planet, capturing many photos that 360Cities contributor Andrew Bodrov has used to create a series of fully-immersive 360º images. Let’s follow Curiosity’s travels on the surface of Mars since it went into action:

NASA’s MSL Curiosity mission Source Images: NASA/JPL-CaltechWith its rover named Curiosity, Mars Science Laboratory mission is part of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort of robotic exploration of the red planet. Curiosity was designed to assess whether Mars ever had an environment able to support small life forms called microbes. In other words, its mission is to determine the planet’s “habitability.”
