Schiaparelli crash site imaged by HiRISE
Following up the detection of the Schiaparelli crash site by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter CTX, the higher-resolution HiRISE camera has now definitively identified the locations of lander impact site, parachute with backshell, and heat shield impact site on the Martian surface. More HiRISE images are planned to image the site in color and in stereo. Read more about the imaging on the ESA website and the HiRISE website.
