Midnight Mars Browser (abreviated MMB) is a computer program I wrote to download and look at the raw images from the Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity. Basically, MMB downloads the raw images from the rovers that NASA/JPL posts on the Internet, and lets you view them in slideshows or "you-are-there" Panorama views.

MMB is an "enthusiast's" tool; I am not connected with NASA or JPL in any way. If you want to learn more about what the program does, read the Introduction in the ReadMe.

Fabulous. Downloads all the new Mars images and presents them in a sensible and fun way.

Only thing... with Mac OS X 10.3.9 when trying to view panorama I get this error:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/media/j3d/Node

Not surprising. It's the only problem out of the box, maybe I should RTFM?

This program is quite entertaining.

The class not found error is happening because you need to install Java 3D, which is indeed documented in TFM. Thanks for the review. :-)
