MRO :NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter blasted off from Cape Canaveral in 2005, on a search for evidence that water persisted on the surface of Mars for a long periods of time. While other Mars missions have shown that water flowed across the surface in Mars' history, it remains a mystery whether water was ever around long enough to provide a habitat for life.
MRO/CTX :The Context Camera (CTX) provides a big-picture, background view of the terrain around smaller rock and mineral targets that are studied by other cameras on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
