3D Picture of Crater Rim Mountains on Mars

July 7, 2014 3D Mountainous Crater Rim Picture from Mars: This is a screen shot from a high-definition simulated movie of Mojave Crater on Mars, based on images taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. A 3-D surface model was created using stereo pairs from the HiRISE camera. Mojave Crater has a diameter of 60 kilometers (37 miles).

The University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory operates HiRISE, which was built by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp., Boulder, Colo. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver, built the orbiter.

Note: This is the most detailed and spectacular Mars photo I have ever seen. (Credits – NASA).

    I would like to thank the incredible Bill Foster of the ‘Chaos Sweeps Away the World’ blog for posting this recently released – and utterly breathtaking – image from our neighbouring planet. Simply stunning… thank you Bill and NASA 🙂
