THEMIS Support for MSL Landing Site Selection
Data from THEMIS helped scientists and engineers choose a landing site for the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL), NASA's next rover spacecraft, due to arrive in August 2011.
Map-Based Search Tool for Mars Images
Search for all images taken by Mars-orbiting spacecraft, from Viking (1976) to missions currently operating.
Targeting Spacecraft Images
JMARS software is helping scientists and engineers target images for NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (HiRISE camera) and Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LROC imager).
Monitoring Atmospheric Temperatures and Dust
Flight controllers on numerous NASA Mars missions are using the THEMIS camera to track dust and temperatures in Mars' atmosphere. The missions include Mars Odyssey, the two Mars Exploration Rovers, and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Spotting a Landing Site for Phoenix
Fields of giant boulders threatened to destroy the Phoenix Mars lander on touchdown until THEMIS found landing sites that were relatively boulder-free.
