NASA releases video made by Cornell undergraduate Dan Maas to dramatize plans for two-rover space mission in 2003 Cornell University

When NASA announced its intention to send two rover exploration vehicles to Mars on its previously announced 2003 space shot, it introduced the ambitious venture with a two-minute computer-generated video that dramatizes the mission with startling clarity and accuracy. The video is the work of Dan Maas, a 19-year-old undergraduate at Cornell University enrolled in the university’s College Scholar program for independent interdisciplinary study.
