Martian Southern Winter

Crisp details in a suite of mid-latitude gullies on a crater wall are captured in this Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) view obtained in southern winter on 12 October 2006. During southern winter, shadows are more pronounced and the ... [Published Red Orbit - Oct 09 2014]

Syrtis Major Crater

This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) picture shows a meteor impact crater in central Syrtis Major. This is a relatively young crater; its ejecta patterns are very well preserved and have not been eroded away by wind or buried by fine ... [Published Red Orbit - Oct 08 2014]

In The Good Old Summertime

The middle portion of the northern summer season is the ideal time of year to capture relatively dust- and haze-free views of martian north polar terrain. This year, much more of the north polar cap has sublimed away than has been evident in previous ... [Published Red Orbit - Oct 07 2014]

Frosty Polar Slope

this Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a dark, layered scarp in the martian north polar region. All of the light-toned surfaces in this image are covered by frost left over from the previous winter. On the scarp, about half ... [Published Red Orbit - Sep 17 2014]

Quotes

...the comet flyby," said Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Project Manager Dan Johnston of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. "It maneuvered for the planned observations of the comet and emerged unscathed."
"These young volcanic features are prime targets for future exploration, both robotic and human" said Mark Robinson, LROC principal investigator at Arizona State University
...of all the work we did for our MSL Mastcams, while addressing some of their limitations," said Mike Ravine, Advanced Projects Manager at MSSS.   "We felt that the most cost-effective improvement was to add a zoom to provide better stereo capability.  The zoom will deliver the same optical quality as the fixed-focal-length systems on MSL, while giving the flexibility to trade resolution against coverage and data volume."
Jacob Schaffner, electronics engineer and the designer of ECAM at MSSS said, "TAGCAMS is a demanding application, but one which the ECAM system has proven well-suited for, and all in a package that weighs less than 3 kilograms. We're proud to be part of this exciting mission."
