Virtual Tours of Mars

Thursday, September 6th, 2012 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I’m still riding on a high from the deployment of Curiosity on Mars, so I was thrilled when I found this virtual tour of Mars site and couldn’t wait to share it with you. 

There are ten different virtual tours of Mars that you can check out. They are Mars Rover Curiosity, Mars Opportunity Erebus Crater, Pathfinder Mission 1997, Spirit Rover Hills Over Yonder, Spirit’s Landing Site, Spirit Rover “Larry’s Lookout”, Spirit Rover “Everest” Panorama, Spirit Rover “Husband Hill Summit”, and Spirit Rover “Independence” Panorama. Pick one to start your tour! 

When the tour loads, you’ll have a control panel in the bottom center of the screen with the options to zoom in and out, navigate left, right, up, and down, as well as make the panorama full screen. You can also navigate with your mouse by dragging it left, right, up, or down. 

Once you’ve explored all that your tour has to offer, you can choose another tour from the lower right hand side of page (if you’re not in full screen mode) just use the arrows to either side of them to scroll through your options. Pick a new one and then explore some more! 

I hope that as Curiosity explores its mission that we receive more of these tours to experience.
