Highlight of the Month December: Ulyxis Rupes Animation


Our highlight shows a fly-over of the southern highlands of the planet at Ulyxis Rupes (also see HRSC Press Release #509). Rupes is the Latin term for scarp or cliff. About two thirds of the image is covered by the South Pole ice cap and scattered ice deposits. The scene extends over a distance of approximately 390 km. Best ground resolution of the nadir is about 50 m/pixel. For the shown sequence two HRSC orbits (8995 & 2491) were used. The animation was created using the software LightWave.

The High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) experiment on the ESA Mars Express Mission is led by the Principal Investigator (PI) Prof. Dr. Gerhard Neukum who also designed the camera technically. The science team of the experiment consists of 40 Co-Investigators from 33 institutions and 10 nations. The camera was developed at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) under the leadership of the PI G. Neukum and built in cooperation with industrial partners (EADS Astrium, Lewicki Microelectronic GmbH and Jena-Optronik GmbH). The experiment on Mars Express is operated by the DLR Institute of Planetary Research, through ESA/ESOC. The systematic processing of the HRSC image data is carried out at DLR. The scenes shown here were created by the PI-group at the Institute for Geological Sciences of the Freie Universitaet Berlin.
