Mars Has No Single Narrative


An image of Mount Sharp and Yellowknife Bay on Mars, created by the NY Times by combining many still images from the Curiosity Rover taken on January 27, 2103 (Sol 170). While the light in this image is amazing, more interesting is the Times’ thoughts on the rover and storytelling.

From Jonathan Corum’s notes for his talk at the Visualized conference: “…since there’s no single narrative of what the rover has been up to, I tried to pull information from multiple sources, and string that into a simple, continuous narrative.”
