rolling plains near the Martian
south pole will serve as a welcome
mat when NASA’s Mars Polar
Lander touches down on the red
planet on December 3. NASA
Headquarters and the Mars Polar
Lander Team announced that the
coordinates (76S, 195W) define
the target landing site for
mankind’s next mission to Martian
surface. Photo-Realistic Terrain
Modeling The objective of this
project is to provide the MVACS
