The creator of Avatar, the biggest hit of Hollywood James Cameron is going to work with NASA for to develop a 3D camera for the next robotic rover that NASA will send to Mars.
NASA announced this month that Cameron is working with Malin Space Science Systems Inc. of San Diego to build an updated camera that, if completed in time, will be installed on theMars Science Laboratory rover , which has been dubbed Curiosity . The rover’s cameras will be the machine’s “science-imaging workhorse,” according to the space agency.
Curiosity is going to launch in 2011.
Engineers, teaming up with Cameron, are just beginning work on the new 3D cameras being built for Curiosity , according to NASA. To make it on the new rover, they will have to be designed, assembled and tested before NASA begins its final testing of the rover early next year.
This is really a good experience for Cameron.Now, Whole the world is waiting for Avatar 2 may be the next project o f Avatar has to be announced.
