Images from Mars

By EXN Staff

 Here are some of the latest pictures taken by the camera onboard Pathfinder. The $6 million imager is perched atop a 5 foot mast and motorized gears allow the camera to swivel, tilt, and rotate a complete 360 degrees. Each digital image takes about 10 seconds to be transmitted back to Earth.
