Now that the government shutdown is over, NASA is back on track.  “Wired” recently posted a great video showcasing some of the beautiful shots of Mars.  These images were captured via the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRise camera.  Check out this video:

As said in the video, these images were captured using stereo cameras to create 3D images. We were amazed at how great these images looked, and we’ll hopefully see more videos like this in the future.
