Time-lapse: 5 years on Mars becomes 3 minutes of video

By | November 23, 2011

This three minute video takes us through a journey that consisted of 5 years, 3 months and 27 days on the planet of Mars.

The video was taken from the Mars rover Spirit, which explored and videoed all aspects of the Red Planet. We see 4.8 miles of rocks, hills and soil, which became an adversary of Spirit’s when the rover got trapped in it.

The video is a compilation of almost 3,500 images taken with the rovers front-right camera.

In the first video, you see it played at 24 frames per second.

 

Another version of the video, shot at 6 frames per second.
