Take a look at our next home, Mars, in 4K resolution. The footage is simply incredible.
NASA and SpaceX have been at the forefront of breaking news lately. SpaceX had their first successful manned mission to the International Space Station (ISS) and then safely back to the Earth, while NASA has officially launched their Mars 2020 rover, on route to the Red Planet, to further gather information about possible life and other fascinating statistics about our neighbouring world.
This, however, has been done in the past. Four times, to be exact. The first rover on Mars was the Sojourner in 1997, and then Spirit and Opportunity in 2004, but they didn't have very good cameras. In 2012, Curiosity landed on Mars with the ability to take high resolution images. At that time, the technology was out of this world... so to speak. But a recent gathering of stunning images of Mars was made public. The footage shows a variety of Mars's landscapes and terrain and, more impressively, all this was received in stunning 4K resolution as you'll see in the video below.
Once we get a taste of the footage from the mission currently underway, we can expect this to be even more impressive. With updated technology, who knows what else it may discover that will forever change the way we think of Mars and our existence.
