In this image, more than a dozen people stand, in winter coats, behind a huge, gray military C-17 cargo plane. From this vantage point, the plane resembles a huge shark with its mouth wide open. Inside the 'mouth' is one of the large boxes that contain the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The wings of the plane jut out from both sides. The sky is cloud-covered.
