The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) still in shakedown mode in preparing to start its mission in November is causing scientist to sit back in awe as it is providing the most detailed images along with the most complex compositional reports to date. All systems on the orbiter are working great and everyone is pretty excited about the data that is going to be collected. [NASA/JPL]

    The images that the Orbiter is sending back are no less than awesome.
