Interactive, 360 Degrees Of Mars!

On, Andrew Bodrov describes himself as a panographer, not a photographer. In fact, he didn't even take the photos in this panorama; the Mars rover Curiosity did. Bodrov stitched NASA's images together to create this amazing, 360-degree interactive image of the red planet.

According to Talking Points Memo, Andrew Bodrov used images from a 2005 Mars rover to approximate the size and appearance of the sun. Below is the interactive as it originally appeared.
