One Mars Year of Planet Four
Mars takes 687 day to complete one revolution in its orbit around the Sun, nearly twice as long as on Earth. We launched Planet Four on January 8, 2013 and today marks one full Mars year of Planet Four. Happy 1st Mars year birthday to Planet Four!
To celebrate and to thank you for all your contributions to Planet Four since launch, we’ve made a poster using all of your names*
The full poster can be downloaded here (it’s big – 22 MB download!), and a smaller resolution version (2 MB download) can be found here. You can find the original image used to make the poster here. It’s a subimage made by the HiRISE team from this newly released Inca City Season 5 image. We picked this image because of all the activity shown. Fans and blotches galore! Did you find your name?
Thanks for all your clicks over this Martian year. The science team is working hard on finishing the first paper based on your classifications. We’re almost there, and plan to submit in early 2015. We couldn’t do this without your time and effort.
