HiRISE


High Resolution Science Experiment (HiRISE)HiRISE

HiRISE, the high resolution imaging science experiment onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, is the most powerful camera ever sent to another planet. The resolution of the camera allows us to see the Red Planet in amazing detail, and lets other missions, like the Mars Science Laboratory, find a safe place to land and carry out amazing science. The operations center is located here at the University of Arizona, and that includes not only observation planning, but the execution of commands sent to the spacecraft along with actual image processing.
