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

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.
