*The public is invited! 

[b:post_uid10]NASA scientists are inviting the public to help them inspect images of Mars and find important geologic features hidden in the thousands of photographs in the agency's archives. NASA will be adding a set of surveying tools to their Marsoweb website which allows anyone to navigate around the surface of Mars, and then zoom into any region they like. [/b:post_uid10]

Researchers hope that volunteers will help with an upcoming Mars imaging experiment. NASA scientists are getting ready for the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) that will fly on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) mission, slated for launch in August 2005. Gulick, co-investigator and education and public outreach lead of the HiRISE team, said that the experiment's [b:post_uid14]super high-resolution camera will be able to capture images of objects on Mars' surface measuring about a yard (one meter) wide.[/b:post_uid14][/quote:post_uid14]

Wow. No wonder they're asking for volunteers.[/color:post_uid14]
