NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been orbiting Mars since 2006 above the Martian surface taking these images using HiRISE (the High Resolution
Imaging Science Experiment camera) at resolutions close to pixels per inches. It is mentioned that the images presented are in either 'false colour'
? Go figure or grayscale, but the detail they show is quite something which does raise the old question of why can't they show images of this clarity
of our Moon?
some are just stunning.
it makes me think though, if we can get such clear detailed close up shots like this all the way in mars, why cant we zoom into the mountains of
pakistan and afghanistan and find bin laden moving around with his homeboys. oh yeah. he's dead
