New Mexico students take virtual tour of Mars


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Students in New Mexico got the chance to tour Mars in a virtual reality vehicle. The Lockheed Martin Mars Experience gave students at Tomasita Elementary and Kennedy Middle School a tour of Mars from inside a school bus.

The tour replicates 200 miles of the Martian landscape and displays it in the bus’s windows giving riders the sensation that they’re moving along the surface.

The event was organized by Sandia Labs and Lockheed Martin. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
