The unveiling of this film marks an important milestone: the first time NASA’s 3D footage has been adapted for public viewing in a motion picture format. Viewers will experience Mars as if they are standing on the planet’s surface and join the crew responsible for NASA’s recent and historic mission to Mars. The breathtaking landscapes and mysterious history of one of Earth’s closest neighbors in the universe are revealed through the now-famous twin robotic geologists, the Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity.
A Twist production in association with the Science Museum of Minnesota. MARS 3D was produced by Melissa Butts and directed and written by Barry Kimm.
Now available on Blu-ray DVD
