And here is the (quite substantial) Feb 2nd webinar the article mentions, with updates from the UAE panel of experts.

...and a parallel article from LASP with some helpful graphics.

Congratulations to the Hope team! Looking forward to many years of exploration and discovery. smile.gif

Topic title changed; this will be the main mission coverage thread. Please minimize creation of additional threads unless and until major events and/or findings warrant same (i.e., things like news stories don't need their own discussion thread.) Thanks!


--------------------
A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

This is the first image in full resolution from that website. Sincere thanks to the mission team for making this available. Check out the beautiful clouds in Valles Marineris. I have brightened the terminator area to bring out more detail. There are some faint features well beyond the terminator which might be high clouds, but also possibly artifacts of the camera or processing. If they don't appear in later images they may indeed be clouds.
