by Timothy ReedThe HiRISE website is one of my regular stops when I need my fix of planetary images. And if you like to surround yourself with samples of the latest releases of images from Mars, the HiRISE Team has made available a series of "HiFlyers"--11x17 color PDF posters that you can print. These little snippets of the landforms of an alien world are beautiful just by themselves as abstract art, but are interwoven--for me, at least--with the pride of accomplishment and the excitement of scientific discovery and exploration.

Images like this remind us what we can do.
