Press Release Photographs on Black and White Film


Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1971-11-10 to 1972-08-06


This data set consists of 4- by 5-in. black and white negatives of the press-released Mariner 9 photographs and mosaics from JPL. Included among these photographs are seven color ones of models made from Mariner 9 photographs and other experimental data. These frames are copied from a film entitled "Mars: The Search Begins." The designations are a JPL-PIO system of numbers unrelated to the DAS or frame number system used on the originals. The photos are of interesting and unusual features, e.g., Olympus Mons and the other great volcanoes or areas; and they include the two Martian satellites. Large strips of the Martian surface are included in mosaic. The quality of the photography is very good.
