Go where no one has gone before—without leaving your computer. NASA has made more than 25,000 images of Mars available online at http://mars. jpl.nasa.gov/mgs/index.html. The images are from the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) made during its mapping orbit, from March 1999 through August 1999. The Surveyor has made more than 5,000 orbits of the planet. The images include all of one Mars year, beginning in May 1997 and ending in September 1999, 687 Earth days.
As of May 2000, all MOC data acquired have been validated by the MGS MOC Operations Team at Malin Space Science Systems and deposited for permanent archive with the NASA Planetary Data System (PDS).
Also on the site are weekly reports of the project, live images of the command center, and VRML models of the spacecraft.
