Have a look at these with your 3D glasses... but be ready to pick your jaws up off the floor...

I give up on the swear jar; it'd be worth more than my retirement fund by now, and I can't afford it. ohmy.gif Damn!

Might have just had our first glimpse of the future Martian Republic's first official National Park right there. The way those black sand cliffs envelop those terraced peaks...incredible!!! Can you imagine what that must look like from the ground?

Whow, those look impressive even without the 3D. I really need to get me some new glasses, I can't believe I managed to loose mine when I moved!

James,

Nip into your local big newsagent and scan the kids magazines for a "summer special" with 3D pics of Hannah Montana or the Tweenies or whatever, it'll have a set of glasses inside, bound to be something. Failing that, most discount bookstores will have a few 3D kids books on dinosaurs or bugs or something, with free sets of glasses inside. smile.gif

Yeah that was my plan. smile.gif My last set came from a crappy mag that has a set to go with some 3D tv show that was on in Oz a few years back.

The think I've probably still got the old ones tucked safely inside a book somewhere for transport but I have too many books to be able to find it again!

Those are absolutely awesome images in 3d, but I think that the dramatic effect is enhanced through a bit of vertical exaggeration (the string of craters in the last image aren't really that deep).

Looking at some of those images it's stunning to see the erosional processes, but there is almost no debris at the bottom of the cliffs.

Wow...
