Take a tour of the mysterious Red Planet. This virtual globe combines a high-resolution satellite map with laser altimeter data and advanced topographic lighting to present the planet Mars as it appears from above. An Introduction and Guided Tour present some of Mars' most intriguing features. You can leave the guided tour and explore Mars as you like; over 1500 surface features have been annotated with information and links. Mars Globe is a must-have app for anyone interested in our solar system.

Nothing like actual satellite images and or what you can see through a telescope.

Very interesting

Now I know how to use it I can see all sorts of stuff like, tracks!
It would be nice to know what made them. Maybe I will figure it out eventually.

Solar system awesomeness

This is a great app for teaching my children of the wonders of the solar system. I only wish the creators of this would build apps showcasing other planets, moons and asteroids, such as Europa, Enceladus, Pluto or Ceres. There are some great photos and files to work from these days.
