Kick back and take a trip over and around the ice filled Korolev Crater , once an impact crater with a diameter of 81.4 kilometres but now the premier ice rink in the Solar System.


This movie was created using an imagery from Mars Express' High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC).

The images are normally taken looking straight down (nadir), and the video combines topography information from the stereo channels of HRSC to generate a three-dimensional landscape, which was then recorded from different perspectives, as with a movie camera, to render the flight shown in the video.

Korolev Crater is 82 kilometers (50 miles) across and at least 2 km (1.25 miles) deep. This well-preserved crater is located the northern lowlands of Mars, just south of a large patch of dune-filled terrain that encircles part of the planet's northern polar cap (known as Olympia Undae).

Nice, look at all that water!

Anyone with half decent hardware and some time can make movies like that using MRO DTM's and Blender. All the software is free.
