New 3D 'flyovers' let viewers swoop down on Mars

New 3D 'flyovers' let viewers swoop down on Mars - New Scientist Space:

"Dramatic virtual flyovers of NASA's two Mars rover landing sites have been made using 3D imagery from the agency's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). The flyovers give a first taste of the probe's astoundingly precise 3D mapping abilities and may help the Opportunity rover find a safe path into the yawning chasm of Victoria crater."
