In this image, two Caucasian men are shown, seated in front of a bluish-gray drapery backdrop. The circular NASA 'meatball' logo is between them and the backdrop.  On the left is the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter project scientist Rich Zurek, a balding man with brown hair and green eyes. He is wearing a blue short-sleeved shirt under a gray sweater vest.  His hands are raised as if he's explaining something to the reporter (not pictured).  In the right of the image is the principal investigator for the HiRISE camera aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Alfred McEwen.  He is a middle-aged man with a graying beard.  He is wearing a cream-colored 'Hawaiian' shirt.
