NASA Tech Briefs listed the HiRISE HiWish program as the #2 tech story of 2010. The most powerful camera aboard a NASA spacecraft orbiting Mars has returned the first pictures of locations on the Red Planet suggested by the public. Through a program called HiWish, scientists received about 1,000 suggestions. Images of areas the public selected are available for viewing.
HiRISE and HiWish are online on the HiRISE site. Congratulations to Alfred McEwen and the HiRISE team!
