This piece of Mars sits above JPL’s Explorer Island, two sims to our east. It is made of new ‘sculpty prims’ based on actual DEM data and is the site being explored by the rover Opportunity. JPL is hoping to have a model rover moving across the terrain matching the original’s movements in near-realtime very soon.
