Useful to remind yourself how many "HiRISE discoveries" were actually made by MOC. rolleyes.gif

I love all of the background information on the saga of MOC and what it took to get the camera aboard the mission. It's fascinating to read about that side of things as you rarely get to hear about it, and it doesn't read like a dry technical account.

Now, if only the scientific community would fully realize that what MOC showed us is a completely different Mars than what we thought it was from Viking. People keep trying to force observations from MOC (and now from MRO) into the Viking view of Mars rather than realizing that the old view needs to be abandoned.
