If you’ve ever played any of the old school video games, Tetris, Pacman, Donkey Kong and others, you’ll love this video. The effects are amazing. It’s what would happen if the Pixels took over New York City.

There is lots more info on this amazingly long-lived mission, and more photos at http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/home/index.html
