Mars Mineral Mapper Flips Its Lid

Celebrating CRISM Confirmation

On Sept. 27, 2006, in the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) science operations center at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md., CRISM team members (from left) Teck Choo, Melissa Wirzburger and Kevin Heffernan, CRISM Principal Investigator Scott Murchie, former APL Space Department Head Tom Krimigis and APL Civilian Space Business Area Executive Walt Faulconer celebrate upon hearing that CRISM's protective cover had opened. CRISM, designed and built at APL, is one of six science instruments on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, now circling the red planet.
