Mars, 2-Megapixels at a time

In case you’ve been away from the Internet for the past week, we, the human race, have just landed another rover on Mars. Said rover has also been sending photos back to Earth via a few on-board 2-Megapixel snappers. While that’s really very cool, some of you kids might be wondering why the resolution on the cameras sent over are so low. There are a few reasons that range from the tech being settled on a few years ago, data issues and simple things like compatibility. Don’t worry, though, a low pixel count doesn’t mean cruddy martian images. Just head over HERE to read a more detailed article and a pretty cool panoramic shot of Mars.
