James Cameron Designing 3D Camera for Mars Exploration
Camera will be part of the Mars Science Laboratory, which is set to launch in fall 2011.
Director James Cameron seems to be single-handedly keeping 3D in the news.
Aside from talking up the re-release of “Avatar,” his latest 3D endeavor will capture life on Mars.
One of Cameron’s next collaborations will be with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and Malin Space Science Systems. According to Popular Mechanics, the three will develop a stereoscopic camera for Mars exploration.
“Not only a 3D camera, but a 3D motion camera,” Cameron told the magazine. “So if it all goes the way it could, we could be shooting a 3D movie on Mars. No actors, though.”
The camera, which is expected to capture 3D images of the Red Planet, will be part of the Mars Science Laboratory, which is set to launch in fall 2011.
