(双语)美国航天局发布令人惊叹的18亿像素火星照片

This panorama of the Martian surface will leave you star-struck.

这张火星表面的全景图会让你大吃一惊。

NASA released the largest and highest-resolution panorama the Curiosity rover has ever taken on Tuesday, and, at close to 1.8 billion pixels, it gives a hyper-realistic look at Mars. Composed of more than 1,000 images taken over the course of four days (between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, 2019) — and assembled over subsequent months — the photo shows a region of Mars called “Glen Torridon,” according to a press release.

美国宇航局周二公布了“好奇”号火星车所拍摄的最大、分辨率最高的全景图,该图以接近18亿像素的像素高度逼真地展现了火星。据一份新闻稿称,这张照片由4天(2019年11月24日至12月1日)拍摄的1000多张照片组成,随后几个月进行了拼接,显示了火星上一个叫做“格伦·托里登”的区域。

NASA Curiosity project scientist Ashwin Vasavada offers further insight into the image in a NASA-produced video, which has already racked up more than 530,000 views on YouTube. “Panoramas like this are like a window to another world,” says Vasavada, encouraging those interested to explore the image further in a 360-degree video.

美国宇航局好奇号项目科学家阿什温·瓦萨瓦达(Ashwin Vasavada),在一段由美国宇航局制作的视频中对这幅图像提供了进一步的了解,该视频在YouTube上的浏览量已经超过53万次。瓦萨瓦达说:“这样的全景图就像一扇通向另一个世界的窗户。”他鼓励那些有兴趣在360度全景图中进一步探索的人。

“While many on our team were at home enjoying turkey, Curiosity produced this feast for the eyes,” says Vasavada of the rover’s Thanksgiving photoshoot on the red planet. “This is the first time during the mission we’ve dedicated our operations to a stereo 360-degree panorama.”

“当我们团队中的许多人在家里享受火鸡时,好奇号创造了这场视觉盛宴,”瓦萨瓦达在这颗红色星球上拍摄的“漫游者”感恩节照片中说。“这是执行任务期间,我们第一次将行动用于立体360度全景。”

The Curiosity rover, which has been on Mars for seven years, previously produced a 1.3 billion-pixel panorama in 2013.

“好奇”号探测器已经在火星上运行了7年,此前在2013年制作了13亿像素的全景图。

The photo, below, is interactive, and its high quality allows viewers to zoom in on distant aspects — including the rim of the crater the rover is inside of. Billions of years ago, the crater wasn’t a barren terrain but a lush landscape of lakes and streams, a fact scientists know from analysis of the area’s rock.

下面这张照片是交互式的,高质量像素可以让观众放大远处的景物,包括火星车所在的陨石坑边缘。数十亿年前,火山口并不是一个贫瘠的地形,而是一个由湖泊和溪流组成的郁郁葱葱的景观,科学家通过对该地区岩石的分析得知这一事实。

The image’s 360-degree perspective warps the image, NASA notes, giving it a fisheye lens-like perspective.

美国航天局指出,这张照片的360度透视图扭曲了图像,让它具有鱼眼镜头般的透视效果。
