Mars Reconnaissance OrbiterThe MRO is sending back some spectacular images, like this one from Terra Sirenum. Go to the web site and check them out. A few days ago they released a shot taken from 150 miles up of the Opportunity Rover on the lip of Victoria Crater. The hi-res image shows tire tracks from the probe and the shadow of the camera boom on the Martian sand.
