with other data, such as measurements of the major constituents of Earth
as seen from space, this is proof that Mars Express instruments are working
proves that the HRSC is working very well. If it can produce pictures
like this from 8 million kilometres, imagine what we can expect once the
spacecraft is in orbit at altitudes of only 300 kilometres!
