HiRISE images make timeless fashion
by Celine Semaan Vernon
"Science is the Breath of Progress."
Science turns us on and we truly believe "Science is the Breath of Progress". Our Mars, Revealed! Collection is made with images from HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment is a camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The 65 kg (143 lb), $40 million USD instrument was built under the direction of the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. It consists of a 0.5 m (19.7 in) aperture reflecting telescope, the largest so far of any deep space mission, which allows it to take pictures of Mars with resolutions of 0.3 m/pixel (about 1 foot), resolving objects below a meter across.
HiRISE has imaged Mars landers on the surface, including the ongoing Curiosity and Opportunity rover missions.)
Sorry for the long parenthesis but we over here love pointing to Wikipedia and have our timeless product carry a little bit of information/education about the kind of Universe and World we live in. Read Space.com interview with Slow Factory's founder.
