Mind blowing

All that can be said is, amazing amazing amazing.
Thank you developers for bringing this to the masses.
It’s a smooth running app that allows anyone to walk
On Mars, with a little help from Curiosity ;D
Only suggestion would be a spot to view the panoramas that have been assembled by NASA.
Love it!

Invaluable Resource!

This is better than anything we even have access to on the Curiosity team for going through images along the traverse. Highly recommended!!!

The best way to view Mars rover images

This app is absolutely the best way to view the photos being taken by the Mars rovers. It does a great job of placing the images into 3D virtual reality where one can move forward and backward daily in time to see what Curiosity Opportunity have seen while controlling which of the numerous cameras are being used.
