Mars Rover Photos

Mars-photos API will provide access to photos taken by Rover vehicle at Mars everyday. If you’d like to use this service on an ongoing basis you can get an API key for free here.

Here is a simply code that uses requests, json and webbrowser libraries.

import requests
import json
import webbrowser

def rover():
    params = {"earth_date":"2016-10-17", "api_key":"DEMO_KEY"}
    f = r""
    data = requests.get(f, params = params)
    a = json.loads(data.text)
    for i in a["photos"]:
        print(i, "\n\n\n")
        b = a["photos"][3]["img_src"]
