Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE)
[1] The HiRISE camera features a 0.5 m diameter primary mirror, 12 m effective focal length, and a focal plane system that can acquire images containing up to 28 Gb (gigabits) of data in as little asExpand

Seasonal Flows on Warm Martian Slopes
Rare meter-scale slope features on Mars might be explained by transient flows of liquid salty water. Water probably flowed across ancient Mars, but whether it ever exists as a liquid on the surfaceExpand

The global shape, density and rotation of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from preperihelion Rosetta/OSIRIS observations
The Rosetta spacecraft reached Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (hereafter 67P/C-G) in August 2014 at an heliocentric distance of 3.6 a.u. and was then put in orbit around its nucleus to performExpand

Observations of periglacial landforms in Utopia Planitia with the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE)
[1] The region of western Utopia Planitia (80–105°E, 40–55°N) displays several types of landforms similar to Earth periglacial features, including scallop-shaped depressions and networks of polygonalExpand

Recurring slope lineae in equatorial regions of Mars
The presence of liquid water is a requirement of habitability on a planet. Possible indicators of liquid surface water on Mars include intermittent flow-like features observed on sloping terrains.Expand

Spectrophotometric properties of the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from the OSIRIS instrument onboard the ROSETTA spacecraft
The Rosetta mission of the European Space Agency has been orbiting the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P) since August 2014 and is now in its escort phase. A large complement of scientificExpand

Evolution of the Dust Size Distribution of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from 2.2. AU to Perihelion
The Rosetta probe, orbiting Jupiter-family comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, has been detecting individual dust particles of mass larger than 10−10 kg by means of the GIADA dust collector and theExpand

Distribution of Mid-Latitude Ground Ice on Mars from New Impact Craters
Martian Impact Impact craters form frequently on Mars, exposing material that would otherwise remain hidden below the surface. Byrne et al. (p. 1674) identified mid-latitude craters that formed overExpand

Shape model, reference system definition, and cartographic mapping standards for comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko Stereo-photogrammetric analysis of Rosetta/OSIRIS image data
We analyzed more than 200 OSIRIS NAC images with a pixel scale of 0.9−2.4 m/pixel of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67P) that have been acquired from onboard the Rosetta spacecraft in August andExpand

The rotation state of 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from approach observations with the OSIRIS cameras on Rosetta
Aims: Approach observations with the Optical, Spectroscopic, and Infrared Remote Imaging System (OSIRIS) experiment onboard Rosetta are used to determine the rotation period, the direction of theExpand
