Spirit at Jibsheet

Spirit at Jibsheet
Spirit at Jibsheet This special effects (fx) image of Spirit on top of a rock called Jibsheet, was produced using "Virtual Presence in Space" technology, which was developed at JPL. The image was created using a photorealistic model of the rover and a false color mosaic of images the rover took with her Pancam in May 2005. The size of the rover in the image is approximately correct and was based on the size of the rover tracks in the mosaic.
