Inside the inverted river bed in Gale crater – in Virtual Reality, 1-1 scale.
By FireFoxG – The Arizona based developer made the section of virtual Mars using hi-res .jp2 images from the HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The HiRISE camera is designed to view surface features of Mars in greater detail than has previously been possible.
The original image can be found at http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/PSP_009149_1750
The room titled ‘Inside the inverted river bed leading to the Gale crater’ can be viewed in 2D on a traditional monitor, or in virtual reality using any virtual reality HMD and the janusVR software, which runs on Windows, Linux and OSX.
The Mars room can be visited by pressing TAB in janusVR and typing http://www.bamvr.com/marsTemp/galeriverbed.html, and janusVR can be downloaded from www.janusvr.com
