NASA takes exotic new Mars images

Postby DarkUFO on Mon Sep 06, 2010 10:25 am

NASA's HIRise camera aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has taken a series of stunning new photographs.

In total 236 new images have been revealed covering the planet from pole to pole, from the beginning of this year the team are even accepting suggestions from the public as to where to point the camera for its next shots.

A new batch of sharp Martian close-ups from NASA's HiRISE camera were released on Sept. 1. HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) has been circling Mars on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter for four years now, taking dramatic photos of the red planet with a telephoto lens to make any paparazzi jealous.
