Midnight Planets is Midnight Martian's ongoing project for visualizing other worlds. Currently the app lets you explore Mars as seen by the Mars Rovers Curiosity, Spirit and Opportunity. It lets you view almost every image returned by the rovers in context, and provides a number of options for viewing in 3D.
What's New in Version 1.2.7
Experimenting with ad placement to get it off the main view.
Makes you feel like you are on Mars
Very intuitive. Without any training at all you can immerse yourself in looking around Mars. You choose where you are looking and the app automatically finds all the pictures and creates mosaics. You can also zoom in and out. 3D using blue cyan anaglyph 3D glasses is also available. I just think this app is cool.
Great way to explore Mars "on foot"!
This app is an excellent resource for 3D viewing of the Martian surface as seen through the "eyes" of Curiosity. Day by day, or sol by sol viewing points, where the rover takes photos or samples, all linked via a navigable travel path. Very customizable as well. Simply put, everyone should be using this.
… Than you'll ever see on a PBS program or on the pages of a science magazine. Wickedly beautiful Hi DEF imagery. We tootle about, here at home on Earth, while technical marvels rome foreign worlds. Turn off your reality television show and tune-in to apps like this.
