Phobos & Jupiter in Conjunction

Sorry if this was covered somewhere else, but I didn't see it mentioned here. A couple weeks ago, ESA published a new Phobos fly-by video.

You can see it at:
http://www.esa.int/esaSC/SEMHGWD1XOG_index_0.html

It shows Phobos in conjunction with Jupiter. Includes a Phobos image in 3D.

there isn't a thread for Deimos, so I will post here this interesting paper just published (free of charge if registered):
New astrometric observations of Deimos with the SRC on Mars Express

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

Worth noting that that entry on the ESA Mars Express blog actually refers back to UMSF. smile.gif

From Daniel Scuka's blog entry: "Looking for a challenge? Let us know where on Phobos you think this image is located (there's a cool 'map' of Phobos over at UnmannedSpaceflight.com)."

Daniel Scuka is Senior Editor for Spacecraft Operations at ESOC, ESA's European Space Operations Centre, Darmstadt, Germany.
