Mars Flyover (nobody home)

Fly Over the Potential Landing Sites For Next Mars Rover (Video) | Universe Today

Hang on and take a bird’s eye look at the four different proposed landing sites for the Mars Science Lab! At a briefing yesterday, Dr. Richard Zurek presented a flyover video of the potential landing sites for the next Mars rover, set to launch in 2011. The video is now available, and Zurek narrates the excellent flyover footage of each site, created by images taken by the HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Enjoy the video, and find out a little more on each of the proposed sites below.
