    MGS has been in orbit around mars for a good while. It mostly takes photos in high resolution of the surface of mars and its geoligic structure so Zandman you may find this intresting.
    i will post weekly pics form MGS a caption and eplaniation of what you are seeing is on the link.

    Mars Global Surveyor was launched in November 1996 and has been
    in Mars orbit since September 1997. It began its primary
    mapping mission on March 8, 1999. Mars Global Surveyor is the
    first mission in a long-term program of Mars exploration known as
    the Mars Surveyor Program that is managed by JPL for NASA's Office
    of Space Science, Washington, DC. Malin Space Science Systems (MSSS)
    and the California Institute of Technology built the MOC
    using spare hardware from the Mars Observer mission. MSSS operates
    the camera from its facilities in San Diego, CA. The Jet Propulsion
    Laboratory's Mars Surveyor Operations Project operates the Mars Global
    Surveyor spacecraft with its industrial partner, Lockheed Martin
    Astronautics, from facilities in Pasadena, CA and Denver, CO.

    I watch this show in england called 'the sky at night' and it talked about these images and how they proved that there were rivers, and large rivers on mars. this is truly and exciting month for nasa and space exploration in general.

    also he said that it proved there was volcanic activity on mars only 100 million years ago, thats pretty startling.
