Phoenix Provides a Panorama of Mars:

"Combining more than 400 images taken during the first weeks after the Phoenix arrived on the Red planet's arctic plain gave scientists this view of Mars.

The full-circle panorama in approximately true color shows the polygonal patterning of ground at the landing area, similar to patterns in permafrost areas on Earth. The center of the image is the westward part of the scene. Trenches where Phoenix's robotic arm has been exposing subsurface material are visible in the right half of the image. The spacecraft's meteorology mast, topped by the telltale wind gauge, extends into the sky portion of the panorama.

This view comprises more than 100 different camera pointings, with images taken through three different filters at each pointing."

Usually space things go on the rocketry page, but science is so important that it has to get posted here sometimes also.

    Desolate place. It's gonna take a lot of work to terraform. I really think that Venus is a better choice, in spite of the obvious complaint.
