Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter instrument deck
This snapshot of Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's instrument deck was captured on March 24-25, 2006, by Mars Climate Sounder. The instrument deck was in shadow when the data was captured, so the view looks black in visible wavelengths. The brightness and darkness of the pixels in this image represents thermal radiation -- heat -- coming off the objects in view of Mars Climate Sounder.
