Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Launches

The next orbiter mission to Mars was scheduled to launch on Wednesday, August 10, 2005 from Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA. Launch actually occurred two days later, in a flawless event that resulted in a healthy spacecraft heading to the Red Planet. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) carries with it the highest resolution camera yet sent to Mars, enabling objects down to the size of a meter across to be imaged.
