Mars Global Surveyor Science Sampler

The MGS Science Sampler contains science data products acquired mainly during the Assessment Phase of the mission (October 13  through November 7, 1997; orbits 19-36). These Web pages provide a quick look at reduced versions of some of the data, with links to the actual data products. Maps showing the assessment orbit ground tracks are below. Links to the Science Sampler documentation files are at the bottom of this page.



Here are diagrams of the spacecraft and the instrument payload from the Mars Global Surveyor Mission Web Site (the MGS web site link requires Internet access).
