Bringing Mars to the Masses

Microsoft Research Faculty Summit 2010

Microsoft Research and NASA worked together for more than a year to bring a new viewing experience to Mars imagery through the WorldWide Telescope. Interactive images and an exciting new NASA data set enable viewers to explore the planet virtually—taking a walk on Mars and making their own scientific discoveries. New features include a true-color map of Mars, astonishing 3-D rendering of the surface of the planet, and exclusive interactive video tours with two NASA scientists.
