On July 24th, according to media reports, a foreign space enthusiast group stitched together a large number of images captured by several NASA’s Mars rover to make a 4K video that was as real as an immersive person. The space enthusiast’s elder Fox Pictures has stitched together thousands of images captured from the surface of Mars by several NASA Mars rovers to create a 4K panorama and pann to create a live video-like effect.
The video address point is this.
The team called the video “the most realistic experience on Mars.”
It is reported that this is the first time in the amazing 4K resolution of the rendering of mars, the photos are mainly taken by Courage, Opportunity and Curiosity three Mars rover. In order to create such a video, you must first combine several images to create pixelors or panoramas, and you can create high-definition video by creating them and panning them at 60 frames per second.
Of course, some might wonder why the Mars rover doesn’t shoot videos directly. There are several reasons for this problem:
First, high-definition video capacity is too large, whether it is storage or transmission is not convenient pictures;
Second, the rate of deep space transmission is not enough, and will also be due to the rotation of Mars, the position of the sun, or due to solar activity interrupted, so the transmission of video is likely to fail;
Third, deep space exploration basically does not require video, because objects on Mars are still, so it makes more sense to take and send pictures.
It is worth mentioning that yesterday, China’s first Mars exploration mission Tianqiao 1 probe successfully in the northeast coast of Hainan Island, China Wenchang space launch site. This Mars exploration is the first mission in the planetary exploration phase of our country, and is also a new milestone in the field of deep space exploration in China, will achieve the “around, landing, patrol” three objectives, this is the first time other countries to carry out Mars exploration unprecedented, the challenge is unprecedented.
