Phoenix mission success panorama (the "Peter Pan")
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, Mars, Phoenix
This is James Canvin's version of Phoenix' Mission Success Panorama, which includes 150 separate camera pointings taken from sols 13 to 43. Canvin produces his mosaics using software he developed for Mars Exploration Rover panoramas. The DVD, encoded with the names of more than 250,000 Earthlings who signed up to ride along with Phoenix to the surface of Mars, is located on the lander deck just below the scoop on the end of the robotic arm. (The robotic arm appears disembodied because the lander did not take a photo of the arm higher in the air.)
