The European Space Agency's Mars Explorer has detected the presence of
aurorae on the planet Mars that are unique in the solar system. The observation was made by Mars Express' SPICAM(Spectrosocpy for the Investigation
and Characteristics of the Atmosphere on Mars.
Wow! is all I have to say. It makes you really glad that the Eurpoeans decided to begin their own space exploration agency. Mars Express has made
numerous exciting observations of Mars over the last several months
and taken some digital high rez photos that were astounding, including the discovery of a frozen lake at Mars' equator.
I look forward to hearing about new and even more thrilling discoveries
by Mars Express in the coming months. What are your thoughts and comments?
