A NASA team already is using Mars Trek to aid in the selection of possible landing sites for the agency’s Mars 2020 rover, and the application will be used as part of NASA’s newly-announced process to examine and select candidate sites for the first human exploration mission to Mars in the 2030s.
Jim Green, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division in Washington, said:
“This tool has opened my eyes as to how we should first approach roaming on another world, and now the public can join in on the fun. Our robotic scientific explorers are paving the way, making great progress on the journey to Mars. Together, humans and robots will pioneer Mars and the solar system.”
