Take a 3D flight over real MARS



The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft has a special high resolution camera nick-named “HiRISE” which can take stereoscopic images, called “anaglyphs”. HiRISE stands for “high resolution imaging science experiment”.

 There are now hundreds of high-resolution images which have been taken by the HiRISE camera. The film’s creator, Jan Frojdman, spent 3 months manually hand-picking reference points amongst the anaglyph image pairs. He eventually chose more than 33,000 reference points to create a film of panning video clips. Frojdman added the colors in the film, which themselves are false because such anaglyph images are based on grayscale images.

“There is a feeling that you are flying above Mars looking down watching interesting locations on the planet.” says Jan Frojdman. “And there are really great places where I would love to see imagery taken by a landscape photographer, especially from the polar regions. But I’m afraid I won’t see those kind of images during my lifetime.”

The video begins with a nearby approach to Mars moon Phobos.
