    I was just checking that I had the latest version of the Java 3D API, and ran
    across this, which may interest some of you:
    
    http://java.com/en/explore/everywhere/mars_rover.jsp
    
    "With the help of Java technology, Earthlings can now explore Mars with the
    program that NASA scientists use to operate the Spirit rover! The Maestro
    project, from JPL, allows you to navigate the 3D world of Mars from your desktop
    computer using advanced Java technologies including Java 3D and Java Advanced
    Imaging. Eight cameras aboard the rover provide a 360 degree view of the
    terrain - join NASA to uncover the mystery of Mars!"
    
    Maybe JPL should check that they have the latest version of the Java 3D API...
