3D Mars Video Brings Red Planet to Life

newly released video, created by stitching together images taken by a veteran Mars spacecraft, provides a richly detailed, three-dimensional view of the Red Planet.

The European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft has orbited the Red Planet nearly 12,000 times, capturing images of Martian valleys, canyons and lava flows that have provided unprecedented views of planet's terrain. Researchers pieced together the individual images into a video that shows a eye-popping video of Mars in 3D.


This has enabled the creation of the most comprehensive data set that has ever been acquired by a German instrument designed to study our solar system," Jaumann said.

Nine light-sensitive detectors aboard Mars Express sweep across the surface of the planet, capturing images in sequence from nine different angles. This data is then processed into three-dimensional images by planetary researchers at the German Aerospace Center.
"We can see the entire topography almost as well as if we were standing on Mars ourselves," Jaumann said.

peace?

 

you speak of peace and yet threaten Mars with weapons of mass distraction?

Send Cruz and McConnell together to the the galaxial black hole. They would probably kill each other before they got there. Cruz alone would pollute the fragile Martian environment. Others need an uncorrupted planet to settle:
