Awesome Images from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's First Five Years
Check out these impressive images sent from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) is five years old this week, and Wired magazine has a great article with all kinds of interesting information and a selection of their favorite Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) images.
The page has an option to view all 14 images on one page, just click the "view all" link towards the end of the article. Otherwise the page displays as a gallery showing one image at a time, something that anyone with low bandwidth can appreciate.
You can see all 18,500 close up images at the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRise) at University of Arizona. In addition to the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) images, the site has quite a bit to offer if you want to explore. I thought the Team Blog made for interesting reading.
Note that the themes section divide images into different "science themes," to make the planning of large collections of images more manageable - not the kind of theme that you can install on Windows.
Both sites are definitely worth a visit.
