If you’re marveling over the incredibly detailed pictures of Mars sent back to Earth by Spirit, the Mars Exploration Rover, prepare to be blown away by what you can do with these images right on your own Mac.

All you need is Maestro, a scientific visualization tool created by the scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) to work with the rovers Spirit and Opportunity. During the 2004 Mars Exploration Rover Mission, you can download a free copy of Maestro for Mac OS X from NASA JPL that allows you to see Mars in ways you’ve never imagined. “It’s actually the same software that the scientists use to view downlink data and to plan Rover activities from day to day,” says Gene Chalfant, technical staff member at NASA JPL.

Just a note, be sure to download Java3D before downloading Maestro. 10.3.2 does not have this installed.
