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.
It took NASA’s Spirit rover a year and a half to get to the top of Husband Hill in the Gusev Crater on Mars. It finally made it, and, like all mountain climbers, took a photo. Check this out!
You may have seen lower-res versions in your newspapers, but the full res shows much more. Note the dust devil whirling in the distance!
There is lots more info on this amazingly long-lived mission, and more photos at http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/home/index.html
