The OP did great work with this panorama, but i am said that this (as was expected..sigh) just turned into another baseless conspiracy
* No one is "censoring" his images and uploads, this is entirely bunk. There are countless sites where one can host bigger files. If fricking pirate
bay doesn't want to host this image..who cares?
* He took the images from NASA...so how much sense does it make to say that NASA wants to hide something and forbid him to make this pan? One big shot
engineer at NASA actually personally emailed him about the pan and told him its great.
* Why are some spots on the panorama(s) white/black? INFORM YOURSELF before you fantasize
The rover was pre-programmed before it even landed to take a bunch of pictures, basically "blind" because no one did even know where *exactly* the
rover was about to land and what would be in those first images.
In a NASA teleconference, they even said they are as eager as we are to get ALL the missing parts of the panaroma because they know the rover didn't
cover some interesting areas, for example that mountain top. (One area with a big white area). THEY are excited as we here to get all those images.
* The rover has 17 cameras in total, do you think they were put on there to hide things and NOT release images or to actually take them?
have 3 days where images were taken/released now but we already have about 2000 (!) images - ok, most of them smaller from the NAV cams - but those
2000 images so far can be accessed from anyone right from their PC. People can d/l them and like the OP make panoramas etc..in addition to the work
NASA does. So where's the problem?
