Thread: more amazing Space/Moon/Mars 3-D images

  1. #1

    Cool more amazing Space/Moon/Mars 3-D images

    following the NEOWatcher's suggestion, this is my new thread devoted to 3-D images


    look at these SIX amazing 3-D images (to see with RED-BLUE glasses) of the Moon soil/rocks published on the Popular Science website:

    the pictures are the only TRUE stereoscopic images ever made of the Moon!

    they were taken by the Apollo 11, 12 and 14 astronauts using a close-range (six-inch) stereo camera designed by Tommy Gold (a Cornell University space scientist)

    to best view all 3-D images, see them at two/three feet of distance from computer's screen, with low room's lights and the browser in Full Screen mode (press F11 key)


    if you want to see FOUR other amazing (and UNIQUE in the world) 3-D images about SPACE click here:

    the images are about the Space Shuttle Discovery, a Lunar Space Station, a Spacewalk and an Apollo astronaut's jump on the Moon


    last but not least, don't miss these NINE (professional-made) 3-D images from the Sports Illustrated swimsuit's website:

    in my opinion the MOST AMAZING of the nine images is the picture #9 here:

    if you look the image in the RIGHT position and WAIT a moment, the girl seems you completely OUTSIDE the screen!

    here the links of the Mars pictures with the best "3-D effect":

    and the winner is...

    to best view the 3-D images' effect you must wait a few seconds to help your eyes to find the right focus

    non-space 3-D images made with a 3-D technique that doesn't need red-blue glasses to see the "effect" (from Cosmiclog)

    Wow, somebody actually responded to one of my suggestions.

    Anyway; a good many links, and not having to sift through a bunch of posts helps.

    Now; if I can get or make the RB glasses.

    no, it's not a natural way to see images, our brain is not "trained" to do that and our eyes need a few seconds to find the right focus... I think that this is mainly due to the red-blue glasses that turn all images too dark ...probably a better view needs brighter images or an increase of the PC monitor's brightness ...of course, future 3-D images must be viewable with hi-res stereo LCD display glasses rather than red-blue or LCD-shutters glasses

    "make" is faster and cheaper ...every office products' shop sells semi-transparent red, yellow and blue plastic cover sheets for cents
