It's Beautiful.

Looks like the camera is doing fine.

From the MRO Website
The range to the target was 2,493 kilometers (1,549 miles). At this distance the image scale is 2.49 meters (8.17 feet) per pixel, so objects as small as 7.5 meters (24.6 feet) are resolved. In total this image is 49.92 kilometers (31.02 miles) or 20,081 pixels wide and 23.66 kilometers (14.70 miles) or 9,523 pixels long.

Here is a lo-resolution version


And here is the Image page, with description, and a 37MB jpeg..
MRO Color Calibration image

Make sure you read the description of the image..this is NOT a True color image!

That's impressive.

What struck me was the sheer number of craters and that many look "new". Any idea of the scale (how big are the craters) and how often Mars get's hit?

Does Earth get hit as often but with ocean and erosion we just don't see them? Was the last big one was tsungiska (sp? - ok the one in Siberia
).

These pictures make mars look a bit more hospitable than the others don't they. It will be exciting to see all the pics come in as I'm sure we will have some surprises awaiting us.

Gools,

Yeah, I noticed how youthful looking some of those smaller ones are..
I'm downloadng the image to crop one out, I'll put it up here in a few.
It really stood out to me..

As far as size..It appears that the biggest ones in the pic are roughly 1.5 miles across? Thats based on the image being 15 miles wide, and me measuring with my fingers..LOL..but I think thats a decent estimate..


AH, here we go..
For context, this crater is very close to the top of the original image, and slightly to the right of center:



This one stood out to me because of the darkness of it's interior, and the darker rays of ejecta that surround it.

There's so much to see in this one image..I can't wait until MRO's orbit is trimmed, and we get to see stuff like this on a regular basis. The scientists will be OVERwhlemed!

A few people mention how new the craters look? Well here is a guy with some ideas on why your probably right in calling them that.

I think this theory is going places even if it takes them longer to admit this than it did continental drift.

Thanks Landis, thats a nice slideshow there..With some information on elevations. And a couple of other images too..


I must confess to visiting Hoaglands site as well, just to see what he could have overprocessed into existence.. He's pretty fast..LOL

Dont break the monitor trying to clean it.

Wow, it certainly doesn't take long for people to come up with that crap, does it? Seems like every new probe we send anywhere ends up creating more and more crazy ideas.

Well speaking for myself i just love reading the stuff considering all the 'cooincidences' it exposes. Why would Malin call the website that for instance? Now i do not freak out over the pictures themselves ( since i find any kind of zooming suspect) and i suggest everyone else also stop looking at the pictures and start actually READING!

THese are the images that are the most interesting to me. The colors are not actual, but representations of variance in mineral, or material content. It's interesting that the triangular shapes, and the odd other odd structure are both comprised of the same material. Or at least a material similar enough to cause these results. I can't wait for the hi-res Cydonia pics.
