NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter is almost ready to fly! Here are various stereovideos and stereophotos of it waiting on the Martian surface.
I made the first zooming-in stereovideo with the 3D-Photo-Inpainting AI, via a depth map extrapolated with StereoPhoto Maker/DMAG. The last image here is that depth map, rendered in Martian color palette. The original shots here were taken by Perseverance Rover’s Mastcam-Z color stereocamera.
The 2nd video here is simply a zoom-in of a still image—this one made by stitching together 8 images (4 for each eye view) from Perseverance’s NavCam.
Finally, the 3rd video is another straight zoom of a still image, but upsized with a little assistance from an AI image enlarger / detail enhancer. These originals were again from Mastcam-Z.
All these original images are available publicly in the NASA image archives (original images credit: NASA/NASAJPL-Caltech/ASU). By the way, Jack DesBwa of Stereopix.net has released an extremely useful tool for navigating the stereopairs from said archive—see mars.stereopix.net.
