Rover getting a software update.
The 4 grey circles in that panorama are the blast zones from the sky crane rockets.
I love how it looks just like some desert on Earth.
But it's fucking on another planet, 200 million kilometres away.
God I really hope they will have the balls into hilly terrain. Whole point of landing in that crater were those mountains in middle and the fact that they've seen parts with open layers from orbit; so I guess they will have to drive there eventually.

This really is fucking badass. I mean, you can look at it and go 'Its just some rocks and dirt' - but its rocks and dirt no one has ever seen (from earth) before! So fucking cool.
That's the most interesting miserable ball of rock and dirt ever. It looks positively awful... and yet not.

No, it looks larger on the horizon.
Edit: you seem to be referencing the same thing but I don't see how looking at a picture will give a different result to looking at the direct image from the same perspective.

It's depressing, a rover on mars 300m km away takes better pics than me on earth
