If you have an absolute favorite spot on Mars, NASA wants to know. The agency may even take a snapshot for you with its most powerful camera circling the red planet.
NASA is taking public suggestions for photo targets on Mars using the HiRISE camera on its Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The "HiWish" project, announced Wednesday, allows the general public to choose a location on Mars from a map on the Internet for HiRISE to photograph.
But there's a catch. Merely asking for a photo won't cut it. Requests must be accompanied with a title for the snapshot and a brief explanation of what scientific benefits may come from the Martian photo shoot. Suggestions also need to be categorized in one of the 18 science themes for the camera's mission at Mars.
Also take a photo of the UFOs parked there.
Um.. also take a photo of the bases we set up in the 60s as well as the 1ft humanoids people think they see in rover photos.
I vote for the initial photo of the "Face" in Cydonia...
Wouldn't it make more sense to actually submit a suggestion to NASA rather than discussing it here?
I honestly have no idea's for any new spots of Mars to be photographed, let alone reasons that it would be scientifically beneficial, but I do know we have some members here that may have some good suggestions.
