Martian Surface as Seen by Phoenix
This anaglyph, acquired by NASA's Phoenix Lander's Surface Stereo Imager on Sol 21, the 21st Martian day of the mission (June 15, 2008), shows a stereoscopic 3D view of the Martian surface near the lander. The largest rock seen in this image is informally called "Midgard." The edge of Phoenix's deck is seen in the bottom right corner of the image.
The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development is by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.
