Wow, I just saw the latest batch of photos from the HiRISE camera. They are beautiful, absolutly amazing, I can't wait to get my hands on them to look some more. For 2 hours I was looking at these detailed pictures (And we barely got through the second of 4), and they are perhaps better than the first. We were expected them to be uninteresting. The reason being something called a Jitter test, which basically is we are testing to see how the camera performs with the other instruments on the camera operating. Many of them move, causing the spacecraft to shake slightly, and we are working to correct them. But, the problem was not largely visible, and we're going to take these processes out, if possible. Stay tuned for these amazing pictures!
