More amazing MRO images

Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter continues to amaze. The latest press release links to images of the Spirit rover and the Viking landers (the latter touched down in 1976). Vehicles, heat shields, backshells and parachutes are all clearly visible – you can even see the folds in the Spirit parachute.

These are great publicity demonstrations for MRO – let’s hope that they continue to inform us of the science from the mission.
