NASA, Google Unveil Mars in 3D


news.yahoo.com

NASA and Google, Inc., have teamed up to build the ultimate atlas for Mars fans eager to explore the red planet in three-dimensional detail while keeping their feet firmly on Earth.

Google Mars 3D, a new mode included in Google's latest version of Google Earth software, allows users to tap into high-resolution and three-dimensional views of Martian terrain from the comfort of their own personal computer.

The mode, which relies on NASA data and imagery from the agency's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and other spacecraft, is designed so users can "fly" through Martian canyons in a virtual mode and see the red planet's surface through the camera eyes of those long-lived NASA rovers Spirit and Opportunity, as well as other Mars missions.

"They can fly to the top of Olympus Mons, the tallest volcano in our solar system, read geo-located excerpts about different locations on the planet from 'A Traveler's Guide to Mars,' observe where various Mars rovers and landers have touched down and much more," Google officials said in an announcement.


So... now for those mars "anomalies", hope NASA didn't censor all of them.

This seems like a very interesting venture for NASA to at least stir some interest for the red planet publicly. For most people they will think it is pretty cool and feel like this is what to expect if we go there. We here at ATS know that these images have gone through a strict sterilization and nothing that could be "controversial" would be in them. I am wondering what they did to the Face and Cydonia. But above that, this is a good move for NASA.
