Relive the last nine months on Mars as seen by the Curiosity Rover

Kevin Lee | May 27, 2013
Since first arriving on Mars in August, the Curiosity Mars rover has been snapping up some of the best off-world photos we've ever seen. Great snapshots are good-and-all, but now thanks to a YouTuber by the name of Karl Sanford, we can get a full picture of what Curiosity has been doing for the last nine-months.

Since first arriving on Mars in August, the Curiosity Mars rover has been snapping up some of the best off-world photos we've ever seen. Great snapshots are good-and-all, but now thanks to a YouTuber by the name of Karl Sanford, we can get a full picture of what Curiosity has been doing for the last nine-months.

Karl has put together a one-minute time-lapse video of every black-and-white RAW photo taken by Curiosity's front left hazcam between August 8 and just yesterday (May 22)--roughly 281 days in total.

While it's not super interesting to watch Curiosity drive from one spot to the next--or stop altogether to collect rock samples--this is the closest you may get to actually being on the Red Planet yourself.
