One of the images in this posting is a Flash animation of several frames of Phobos moving across the surface of Mars. Does anybody here know of a way to grab the animation in any save-able format? They don't provide a .gif, .avi, or .mov version to download.

Here's the file, working on a conversion...

I'm not sure if there is a freeware or shareware program available for this. However, you might try the trial version of "Flash Saver" to see if it works.

Thanks for the suggestion, Alex...

Whioch file extension did you try first time around? I'll add it to the list of allowable ones anyway. (it's a security thing so people can't upload malicious stuff)

Might not want to remove a block on, say. .exe files, Doug. Way too much possibility for malicious attachments that way.

In the case of a trusted person sharing a proven-safe application, the poster can always rename the file with a different file extension, and instruct those who download it to change it back to an .exe extension after downloading. It's a simple and effective way of getting the job done without exposing the forum as a whole to any further risk.

'Twas a shockwave file that killed the beast. ".SWF"
I don't see many of us using that format in the future... not sure why ESA is using it and not some other like FLV or Quicktime.
I agree with dvandorn about keeping the hatches battened down as much as possible.

Alternatively, after downloading a file, it is a good practice, before executing it, is to click the program spam scan to test it about its authenticity. That way, this will avoid any further troubles with your computer.

Yup - it's fairly restrictive at the moment. I added XLS a few days ago ( an admin thing cool.gif ) - but other than that, I've not added to the default 'payload' of allowable attachments much, ever warey of the implications.

A new announcement has been added to the Mars Express Science & Technology pages here.

New views of the Martian ionosphere

15 Nov 2012
High above the main body of Mars' atmosphere is a region of weakly ionised gas, known as the ionosphere. For the last eight years this poorly understood region has been observed by instruments on board ESA's Mars Express orbiter, and new studies show that the dayside ionosphere is more variable and more complex than previously thought.

17 January 2013

ESA’s Mars Express imaged the striking upper part of the Reull Vallis region of Mars with its high-resolution stereo camera last year.

Reull Vallis, the river-like structure in these images, is believed to have formed when running water flowed in the distant martian past, cutting a steep-sided channel through the Promethei Terra Highlands before running on towards the floor of the vast Hellas basin.

This sinuous structure, which stretches for almost 1500 km across the martian landscape, is flanked by numerous tributaries, one of which can be clearly seen cutting in to the main valley towards the upper (north) side.

The page with the images, including a nice 3D image, is here.

Some new Mars Express images have been released.


14 February 2013

ESA’s Mars Express took a high-resolution stereo image on 13 January of the southeast corner of the Amenthes Planum region on Mars, near to Palos crater and the mouth of a well-known sinuous valley, Tinto Vallis.

The results can be seen here.

Stunning as always. smile.gif

I'm not sure why the site has an option to rate the pictures. They are all five stars stuff.

25 March 2013

ESA’s Mars Express has spent nearly ten years imaging the Red Planet, and there are plenty of hidden treasures buried in the mission’s rich picture archive.

HRSCview is a web interface to the archive that offers a chance to browse and explore any region of the Red Planet through the eyes of Mars Express with images that have not necessarily been highlighted by formal media releases.

See the full press release here.

The HRSCview is here.

Some nice MEX images and analysis of twin craters, at the ESA MEX page. Exploding ice craters. Who knew?

Giant landslides, lava flows and tectonic forces are behind this dynamic scene captured recently by ESA’s Mars Express of a region scarred by the Solar System’s largest volcano, Olympus Mons.

A discussion with illuminating images can be found on the ESA web site.
