James Cameron's plan to have 3-D cameras sent to Mars on NASA's next rover has been scrapped.
NASA has stated that the reason the plan to include the cameras on the mission was ditched was because there wasn't enough time to test them out thoroughly before the launch. "While Curiosity won't benefit from the 3-D motion imaging that the zooms enable, I'm certain that this technology will play an important role in future missions," said Cameron in a press statement.
Two high-resolution 3-D cameras that Hollywood director James Cameron was helping to build for NASA's next Mars rover have been abandoned by the space agency.
