Dear LFM Folks: "Yeah, Baby!" I can't B E L I E V E how cool it is! You have GOT to see this! The first high resolution Mars Global Surveyor MOC images are now ONLINE! http://barsoom.msss.com/mars/global_surveyor/camera/images/p3_p7_release/index.html There are 2 of them, both with about 6 meters per pixel resolution. This is better than anything from Viking. The best high resolution Viking images were about 8 meters per pixel. Soooo Coool! Both images show valleys-- some in Noctis Labyrinthus and the other is Nirgal Vallis. Both show DUNES on the valley floors. Beautiful dunes. (My specialty, so I am loving this very much!). There is an MGS press conference today at 9 a.m. PDT. There will be these MOC images, plus new stuff from TES, MOLA, etc. Very exciting! COOL! I just about fell out of my chair when I first saw these images! LOVELY! If you can't catch the press conference, be sure to check the MGS web sitelater in the day for all the press-released pictures. Marvelous! I LOVE THIS!
