3D ON MARS
It takes 14 minutes for a signal from Earth to reach Mars. This was proving a problem for Curiosity’s controllers at NASA. By the time, they saw an obstacle ahead and steered the rover, it would be 14 minutes too late. So NASA is now using imagery captured by Curiosity and viewing it in 3D using NVIDIA 3D Vision glasses. The team in charge scrutinises the geography and plot a path of 40 m before it instructs the rover where to go and what to do.
