Mars Explorer Rover
Both Alex and Calvin are fascinated by the Mars missions. Here are some amazing web sites:
* “Mars Exploration Rover Mission”:http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/home/. The official site. Some cool videos and images. Lots to explore.
* Maestro Headquarters. Wow, you can look at the imaging applications they are using at the JPL to piece together all those photos they are taking into a 3-D world. Cool visualization application that’s a Java application you can download and try.
* “Panoramic Views”:http://athena.cornell.edu/the_mission/ins_pancam.html. Amazing, you can do a 360 degree view around.
