This video was compiled from images taken by the Mars Express satellite in its numerous orbits around Mars. It isn't a stitching together of all its images but it takes the color and texture from them and combines it with the height map calculated from the images. The result is a pretty neat video they've released to simulate how a flyover of Mars would look.

That was pretty awesome.

On the topic of Mars, I read or heard about some company who wanted to orchestrate a one-way-trip for about 8 specially trained astronauts to be the first human settlers on Mars. Seems pretty far fetched IMO, but... What do you think would be the odds of something like that to turn out succesful?
