One Last Look at the Martian Arctic
Wednesday 28 March 2012
Instrument: Surface Stereo Imager.
This is a false color image of the Martian terrain and rock called "Winkies" (rock "Quadlings" in foreground) taken by the Surface Stereo Imager camera on NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander on Sol 151 of the mission (Oct. 27, 2008). This frosty image is among the last taken by the lander before the mission’s final communications on Nov. 2, 2008.
