With the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop, an Atlas V launch vehicle, 19 stories tall, with a two-ton Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on top, roars away from Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 7:43 a.m. EDT on Aug. 12, 2005.

Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Launch Postponed

Technicians and engineers dressed from head to toe in blue coveralls (called 'bunny suits') prepare the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's large, black high-gain antenna (that resembles a satellite dish) to be mated with the body of the spacecraft. The bus of the spacecraft with nearly all of its instruments in place, sits just to the left of the people pictured. Parts of the orbiter are covered in gold, shiny thermal blanketing. Facing directly upward is the spacecraft's huge Hi-RISE camera covered in black protective blanketing.

In this image, six individuals sit at consoles in front of computers during a launch rehearsal for the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission. Launch vehicle manager Arden Acord (a gray-haired, Caucasian middle-aged man with a goatee) points to data on project manager Jim Graf's computer. Graf is a brown-haired Caucasian man in his fifties. Flight system manager Howard Eisen sits to Graf's left. He is a Caucasian man with brown hair and a goatee. Next to Eisen are two Lockheed Martin employees, one of whom is Tammy Harrington, the mission integration manager. She is a blond woman in her forties.
Launch Rehearsal
Full Resolution
A group of eight engineers and technicians dressed in white and blue cleanroom coveralls and bonnets (called 'bunny suits') stand and watch as the large, boxy bus of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is lifted by a large, white mechanism. The bus is covered in protective, gold thermal blanketing.
Assembly, Test and Launch Operations Phase

In this image, a Caucasian man wears a white, protective suit in a cleanroom. His face is mostly covered and his hands are gloved. He is working on the CRISM instrument for the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission. The instrument sits on a slanted aluminum-like board covered with yellow Kapton tape - a low-static tape safe for using in cleanrooms and near or on instrumentation.
