3D ON MARS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - BITRATE -

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.
