PROJECT DESCRIPTION

In preparation for arrival at the Psyche asteroid, teams are working to create a Virtual Reality experience on Phobos, using image data returned from the Mars Odyssey orbiter. The purpose is to showcase the actual data and what is already known about Phobos and prepare for the datasets that will be returned from Psyche.
