An Odyssey Of Martian Science

Stuck in orbit, most people have no idea that Odyssey even exists, but its mission has been one of the most important Mars missions to date.
Pasadena - Oct 07, 2003
NASA's Mars Odyssey team has released another significant installment of science data for the public and science community to review and analyze.

"The three instrument suites onboard Odyssey continue to produce excellent data," said Jeffrey Plaut, Project Scientist for the mission.

"This release includes data acquired as recently as this past March. It includes over 15,000 new infrared and visible images, as well as thousands of new measurements of gamma rays, neutrons, and charged particles that will help us understand the martian environment."

The Odyssey spacecraft has been collecting science data for a year and a half, revealing subsurface water ice, the mineral and elemental composition of the soil, and the space radiation environment. It has also provided spectacular imagery from the visible and infrared cameras.
