Gale Crater Traverse Video

Posted by Ryan

Hi folks! My apologies for the lack of posts lately. It turns out that trying to finish up a PhD is time consuming! Anyway, I expect I’ll continue to be scarce here, but I am working on lining up some guest posts to keep you entertained. In the mean time, check out this video that I made of a possible traverse up the mound at Gale crater! I used the Mars Exploration Engine program, which reader Adam Hollidge is developing. He was kind enough to give me a trial version, and I’m really impressed. It’s an awesome tool for visualizing HiRISE topography and images, and I put this video together for a talk I gave about the Gale landing site on Monday. Enjoy!
