1.7 terabytes of HiRISE Mars images released

The HiRISE camera folks at UA have stepped up the release of imagery from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

More than 64,000 images, totaling 1.7 terabytes are now publicly available and more will be coming monthly.

This is as much fun as 40 years ago when the first Landsat and other satellites were streaming back photos that allowed us to see the Earth in a way never imagined.
