hi all
according to the latest ESA bulletin (number 148), the agency has released this mosaic of Mars showing the HRSC coverage last November for the 10,000th orbit. I can't find it anywhere on the web. can you?

I haven't found the original of the image but high resolution JPGs of the two pages of the ESA bulletin are at:

A little cut and paste with Photoshop should yield a better version of your image, which probably isn't what you wanted.

Following my own suggestion, here's the higher resolution version of your figure.

There's a curious coincidence regarding HRSC and Gale Crater.

They're imaged it 6 times - but never in color. I pinged ESA via twitter, and they said they will do it at some point, as the plan at this time is for HRSC to get global color coverage.

just noticed I trivia about Mars Express no one seems to have noticed until now: with the loss of Yinghuo, ESA remains the only agency of five to have succeeded its first Mars mission on the first attempt (well, almost, if you don't count poor Beagle 2)

I think it would be easier to exempt Mariner 3, since Mariners 3 and 4 were more or less one mission, and Mariner 4 succeeded.

If Occam had heard my theory, things would be very different now.

The original image was made by me and is some 8000 by 4000 pixels and available in this colour
scale as well 'scaled true colour' (i.e. RGB each blown up to 0-255). The images are 10 MByte jpeg's
each (the original PNG's are much bigger)
Attached is a heavily compressed copy of the latter.

Amazing work!

Can you send less compressed jpeg or can you give a link to it?
