Spirit's View in 3-D
February 15, 2005
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit used its navigation camera to capture this three-dimensional view during the rover's 390th martian day, or sol, (Feb. 6, 2005). The rover advanced about 13 meters (43 feet) driving backwards uphill on that sol. The view is uphill toward "Cumberland Ridge" on "Husband Hill." It is a stereo anaglyph presented in a cylindrical-perspective projection with geometric seam correction.
