Images from the long-awaited Dawn Vesta data set

Daniel Macháček • November 29, 2012 • 4

So far, the only high-resolution surface panorama we've seen from Curiosity is the black and white Navcam image. The Mastcam shot a color panorama, but the only version we have so far was created from the lower-resolution thumbnails.
