During three years in orbit, the german HRSC experiment covered an area of 45 million km² (one-third of the planet's surface) with a resolution of 10 to 20 meters per pixel.

The following image is centred at 78° north latitude and 89° east longitude. The image data were taken from a distance of about 450 kilometers with a resolution of about 21 meters per pixel in orbit 3695 (november 23, 2006).

Stunning indeed!!! blink.gif While some of us (including myself) have knocked ESA in the past for low-quantity output of results, the quality of their releases is never less than outstanding! There may well be a method to their madness...

Notice the apparent "peeling-off" of the terrain around the crater...LOTS of layers exposed here. It looks way too rough for a conventional lander and/or rover, but it would sure be a terrific target area for a balloon/dirigible (no, not a helicopter! smile.gif )


--------------------
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.

"Real" hiking maps are at 1/25.000 on Earth. What can we do at 1/200.000 ? tongue.gif

Helen had a good idea - once some DEMS are published, we could explore them with a moto-X simulator of some sort smile.gif

This I didn't knew... smile.gif

"Right now we covered 35 percent of the Martian surface for resolutions between 10m and 20m per pixel. We are just getting a mission extension for 2008 and 2009."
