    The one in my link was put together last spring in preparation for a press release. I think the imaging people completed it recently in your link.

    We just had Mars Odyssey take a picture of Mars two moons. Now see the latest pictures of the two moons taken by Mars Express with Saturn in the background.

    New images and video from ESA’s Mars Express show Phobos and Deimos drifting in front of Saturn and background stars, revealing more about the positioning and surfaces of the Red Planet’s mysterious moons.

    After 15 years circling Mars, Mars Express now tells us there is water in Mars - not on

    http://www.planetary.org/blogs/emily...rs-really.html

    The report comes from the European Space Agency's Mars Express, the second-oldest spacecraft still operating at Mars. It's best known for the beautiful color stereo images from its High Resolution Stereo Camera, but today's results come from a different instrument, the Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding (MARSIS). To explain the water story, I'll need to explain the instrument.

    Now for Christmas, Mars Express give you a new winter holiday destination --- warning --- you might have to wait 30 to 40 years before you can hitch a ride to get there.

    This image shows what appears to be a large patch of fresh, untrodden snow - a dream for any lover of the holiday season. However, it's a little too distant for a last-minute winter getaway: this feature, known as Korolev crater, is found on Mars, and is shown here in beautiful detail as seen by Mars Express.

    "Mars Express completes 20,000 orbits around the Red Planet"

    http://www.marsdaily.com/reports/Mar...lanet_999.html

    Mars Express, the European Space Agency's (ESA) first planetary mission, is a true marathon runner among spacecraft. Launched on 2 June 2003, the spacecraft arrived at Mars during the night of 25 December that same year.

    On 26 October 2019, this spacecraft completed its twenty-thousandth orbit around Mars. Mars Express is in good company in Martian orbit: NASA's Mars 2001 Odyssey and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter have also been studying the Red Planet for more than 10 years. Odyssey has been in orbit since 2001 and Reconnaissance Orbiter since March 2006.
