First specialized asteroid mission and NEARly forgotten one. And first landing on asteroid!
So it's time to change it.

First image is Mathilde in enhanced colors from 450, 550 and 700 nm filters.
Second is artificially colorised high resolution mosaic (116 m/pix).

I would not say totally forgotten! Here is a 1/36 scale model of NEAR I scratch built many years ago. A college chum and close friend was the structural engineer on the project. He works at JHU/APL.

My first mosaic of Eros.
It's from raw data and because I haven't got calibration data yet, it isn't perfect.
But still it's maybe highest resolution color mosaic of Eros available (Eros is really forgotten object).

Correction:
I use wrong date (product creation time)! So now it's correct. I'm sorry.

Very nice! We had a thread on here until a year ago about Eros, so it's not totally forgotten, but there's a lot more that could be done with the images.

YEARS and years ago - probably 3, 4 maybe years before UMSF - I did some mosaics of NEAR images that made it to space.com smile.gif Probably my first 'public' stitching work biggrin.gif

Are they the first 'bootleg postcards' in the specialist press?

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.

Spaceviews and Space.com had used some of my Soviet work at the time, but that is all I can think of.

<O.T.> Long before "Photoshop" became a verb, like 1997 or so, some images I created were circulated among reporters I knew from work, and a reporter from USA Today eventually got his hands on them and did a small segment that they called "Altered Reality" or something like that. I was going to make a wildlife calendar of absurd scenes, like the annual migration of Mono Lake penguins returning to California's high desert. A couple of those were printed and I probably have that story in a box somewhere. I really should get around to doing that project now that we have high res SLRs and tools we didn't have back then. </O.T.>
