New images on Planet Four: Terrains
We’ve uploaded a new batch of CTX data onto Planet Four: Terrains. These new images have never been reviewed by human eyes in such detail before. With your help, Planet Four: Terrains aims to map where different types of Martian terrains occur in images taken of the South Pole by the Context Camera aboard Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. We will use the locations you identify to find new areas of interest to serve as targets for detailed study with the HiRISE camera, the highest resolution camera ever sent to a planet! These high resolution images in turn will end up on the original Planet Four to study the fan and blotch cycle in these new areas.
Who knows what interesting finds might be waiting in these new images. Explore the South Pole of the Red Planet today and help identify terrains at http://terrains.planetfour.org
