Flying over Mars


Please paste this link into your browser http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap080519m.html . This is a digital animation of flying over Mars.

Combining data from orbital scans by the Mars Orbiter, and film taken from the ground level by the Mars Rover; they've combined them into a digital film.

As they say in Speed Racer, "Cool beans!"

Wonderful. But I was dissapointed to see a Tesco express on the summit :( Then again, at least it means that the variety of space travellers can get their supplies all in one place and can save quality astronomy time.
