Nasa Mars image 'next best thing to being there'

Help

Nasa has released a new full-circle image of planet Mars, which it says is the "next best thing to being there".

The view comes from the panoramic camera on Nasa's Mars Exploration Rover, Opportunity, combining 817 images.

It shows the tracks left by the rover while exploring a crater.

BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty and Roger Johnson have more details.
