First High-Res Pics of Martian Surface

HiRISEThe first images from the HiRISE Camera will be taken Friday, 24 March between 4:41 and 4:50 AM Greenwich Time.


The High Resolution Imaging Experiment camera, which is on board the most recent NASA probe, will be sending home some of the most detailed photos ever taken of the Red Planet. According to the scientists at the University of Arizona, who are overseeing this project, a large part of this project is experimental, as they test new imaging methods.


Eventually, some of the images will be used to determine potential landing sites for the Phoenix Mission Lander, scheduled to arrive on the Martian surface in two years.
