The Curiosity rover has taken some 360 degree images from Mars that have been published on website, and they are especially stunning for iPad and iPhone users.

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to stand on Mars and look around, this is probably as close as you’ll get. The camera is on the top of Curiosity and has taken a shot all around the rover. On the regular website you can pan around in a Google Street view style, but if you’re using an iPad or iPhone, then you can look around just by moving the device around you (it works in conjunction with the inbuilt accelerometer).
