Man has never been so close to putting his feet on Mars, yet these missions are still a long way away.

He then processed the images into a series of panning video clips and "moderately" coloured the grayscale images.

"There is a feeling that you are flying above Mars looking down watching interesting locations on the planet", Fröjdman wrote. Because there are attractive places!

Noting there was widespread debate about what colour Mars landscapes were, Fröjdman opted for the general consensus of "yellowish" for light regions and "bluish" for dark regions, and threw in a white-blue for the polar regions. But I'm afraid it will not be possible in my lifetime, "says the videographer, relayed by kottke".

" Making these panoramic images was really time consuming".

Tens of thousands of those images have since been transformed into anaglyphs which can be viewed in 3D through special glasses. For this film, I had to choose more than 33,000 points of reference!

By rendering the frames for the 3D effect, the compelling video came to life, which took three months to complete.
