Fly in 3D Over the Gusev Crater (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)
This interactive activity lets you explore the Gusev Crater on Mars in 3D. This is the landing site for the MER rover in January 2004. The 3D model was created using data from orbiting spacecraft. You can examine the surface from a distance, changing lighting to enhance features, and fly over the surface, looking for markers hidden in the terrain.
