Computer scientists at the University of Illinois at Chicago have created a real-life holodeck where astronomers can fly over the surface of Mars, and where "Star Trek" fans can walk around a life-size recreation of the Starship Enterprise.

Called CAVE2, it features screens eight feet high wrapped 320 degrees around the viewer.
