Access Mars: A WebVR Experiment

We're hanging out with NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration this Tuesday with Access Mars. Access Mars lets you explore a 3D replica of the Marian Surface, exactly as it was recorded by the Curiosity rover. As Curiosity has traveled across Mars, it's taken digital photographs with two stereoscopic camera systems. By combining and analyzing these photographs, scientists at Nasa JPL have created a 3D model used to study Mars and plan future experiments.
