Mars, on the Curiosity Rover

Mars, on the Curiosity Rover

Access Mars lets you explore a 3D replica of the Martian surface, exactly as it was recorded by the Curiosity Rover. As Curiosity has traveled across Mars, it's taken digital photographs with two stereoscopic camera systems. By combining and analyzing these photographs, scientist at NASA JPL have created a 3D model used to study Mars and plan future experiments. For the first time, this same 3D model is now available here for anyone to explore in their browser.
