A Closer Look at Glinka
The image above shows a potential volcanic vent within the crater Glinka. The resolution of this image is more than two times better than previous images of the same area. The crater Glinka was named for the Russian composer Mikhail Glinka (1804-1857). He is regarded as one of the fathers of Russian classical music. Glinka wrote several operas, piano pieces, orchestral works, and chamber music. His piece called "The Patriotic Song" was adopted as Russia's national anthem from 1990-2000.
