Fantastic Mars Flyovers
New 3-D flyovers of Mars have been released. Using high resloution images from the Mars Reconassiance Orbiter, NASA have created detailed flyovers of the sites where the rovers SPIRIT and OPPORTUNITY are working.
The Flyby of Victoria Crater (2.4 Mb) zoooms by a virtual rover then skims aross the dune filled crater. The Flyby of the Columbia Hills (4.5 Mb) appraches across cratered plains then pans up the rugged hills themselves.
