THEMIS Team Meeting 2018

On October 9th, 2018 the THEMIS science team got to walk on the map at their annual team meeting at Arizona State University. This was the first team meeting held since the map was completed, which meant it was the first time that many of the team members had the opportunity to see the map in-person. It was also the perfect opportunity for a team photo!



The 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft and the Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) have been acquiring infrared images of Mars for more than 16 years. The best-quality images from the mission have been compiled into a global mosaic at 100 m/pixel resolution and printed on a walkable basketball-court-sized vinyl mat to spread awareness and excitement about Mars exploration!
