Mars Now Has A Street View That You Can See

Google Maps, eat your heart out. All that lousy app can do is just show us every single street in the world both from an aerial view, and often a look at ground level as well. But that’s just our big blue orb. What about other planets? I didn’t think so. That is where NASA’s Perseverance Rover has Google lapped because according to the official Twitter account for the rover, there is now a “street view’ for Mars. With the latest 3-D tool, people can go explore the red planet much the same way we can on Earth.

The new interactive tool on the NASA website allows users to follow the trail of the Perseverance rover as it roams across the Martian landscape taking samples and taking in the surroundings. By clicking on the map which shows the rover’s path, one can get a 3-D landscape, full-circle view from what the Perseverance has photographed along the way. It’s an amazing feature, allowing ground-level access to a planet that only existed in science fiction books and stories before. Now we can get a look at the actual goods.
