Earth-Mars Planet Comparisons (False Color with Axes and Orbit Plane)

This is a visualization showing the relative size of Mars compared to that of Earth. This version uses false color textures (there are corresponding true color versions as well). The colors correspond to the heights above/below 'sea level.' This version also includes pole axes and an orbit plane.
