James Cameron has convinced NASA to mount a 3-D camera on top of Curiosity's mast for the upcoming mission to Mars, scheduled to launch in 2011.
The famed "Avatar" director, whose own 3-D camerawork has revolutionized the cinematic industry, has convinced NASA to mount a 3-D camera on top of Curiosity's mast for the upcoming Martian mission, scheduled to launch in 2011.
Cameron believes that including a camera with 3-D capabilities will help engage the public and generate more excitement about Curiosity's work.
"It's a very ambitious mission. It's a very exciting mission," Cameron said according to the Pasadena Star-News. "(The scientists are) going to answer a lot of really important questions about the previous and potential future habitability on Mars."
