I've heard somewhere (think it may of been one of the BBC News website articles) that some of these panorama shots have been 're-coloured to colours that humans are more used to seeing'. What does that mean?
They've probably added more reds and browns than what is "really there." But I've also heard that the pictures we're getting here are "true color" ones as opposed to the "doctored" ones we've gotten in the past.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
