Nvidia in Mars

I got a press release from Nvidia saying that NASA chose its graphics technology to reconstruct the imaging data sent by the two rovers currently roaming around Mars. Nvidia said that its graphics processing chips (probably the Quadro GPUs?) are used to visualize the Martian surface in 3D, allowing scientists to explore the red planet virtually.

Now, if we can only challenge the Martians in Counterstrike...
