HiRISE Uplink Operations
HiRISE is a high-resolution camera currently in orbit around Mars on the MRO (Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter) spacecraft. We take very detailed (25 cm/pixel) images of Mars in color and stereo. We also worked closely with the Phoenix mission doing landing site studies, relay and cooperative science.
HiRISE completed its primary science phase in November of 2008; we are now in an extended science mission. MRO will continue to do reconnaissance of potential landing sites for the Mars Scence Laboratory, as well as relay and cooperative science upon its arrival at Mars in 2012.
HiRISE images Ingrid has planned (Internal HiReport link; team members only for now, sorry!)
Current members of the HiRISE Uplink Team:
HiRISE for everyone:
- PhD candidate working with Alfred McEwen.
- Current projects: Morphology and statistics of small recent craters on Mars and the Moon; implications for current cratering rates, planetary chronologies, target material properties, seasonal variability of impact rate, and exploration hazards.
