11+ Years of Mars Roving in 8 Minutes | Time-Lapse Video

NASA's Opportunity rover has 'run' a science marathon (and then some!) on the Red Planet, traveling over 26.2 miles. The Mars Exploration Rover team compiled ‘Hazcam’ imagery (2004 - 2015), combined with terrain vibration data, odometer readings and made a map to track the journey. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

    11 years to do a Marathon?! I want to go to Mars, where I'll finally have enough time to complete my first marathon.

    Seriously though, cool video. It's amazing that this is from the surface of Mars - it's totally surreal.
