Product Description

This incredible set of three DVD-ROMs features an up-to-date, comprehensive guide to the exploration of Mars by the two NASA rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, starting with their landings in early 2004 and continuing with the extended exploration mission through the fall. The rovers made history, finding strong geological evidence for liquid water during the past on the surface of Mars. They also have been transmitting spectacular color images of the surface, with amazing vistas of craters, hillsides, and rock formations. This DVD-ROM set features a fantastic collection of over 100,000 images taken by the rovers? including high-resolution, panoramic, and three-dimensional images that can be used directly from the disc and viewed by any image graphics software. We have also reproduced the images in Adobe Acrobat PDF files, creating unique "Image Galleries" which present the photos in a computerized photo album format suitable for quick full-screen browsing. In the Image Gallery, many of the photos are accompanied by an original caption. This format was designed to mimic the look and "feel" of a real book; there is no need to laboriously import specific images into a slow-loading program for viewing and printing. As you flip through the images in the Gallery, you can magnify photographs for better viewing. The three discs contain over 12 gigabytes of data? the equivalent of about 17 CD-ROMs! There is complete coverage of the mission, science findings, rover updates, mission team, mission timeline and events, landing site maps and photographs, rover egress and surface operations events, full archive of updates during the mission, and much more. This set provides the most comprehensive coverage of the Mars Rover mission that you ll find anywhere! Our discs are privately-compiled collections of official public domain U.S. government files and documents - they are not produced by the federal government. They are designed to provide a convenient user-friendly reference work, utilizing the benefits of the Acrobat format to uniformly present thousands of pages that can be rapidly reviewed or printed without untold hours of tedious searching and downloading. This book-on-a-disc set makes a superb reference work and educational tool. These DVD-ROM discs are for use in a computer DVD drive. The files can be accessed from the File Explorer in the same way that you open files from a CD-ROM disc; the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM formats are functionally the same, but the DVD has more than six times greater storage capacity. Of course, these discs cannot be "played" in a DVD player connected to a television set. They contain computer-formatted data, not video.. Price: $39.95
