Mars on 'Webcam' - Orbiter's Camera Repurposed | Video

ESA's Mars Express's Visual Monitoring Camera (VMC) was originally added to the mission for confirmation of its Beagle 2 lander separating from the spacecraft. Since 2007, it has been delivering imagery of the Red Planet, which is available of the mission's Flickr page. Mission scientists are now using the 'unique vantage point' to learn more about the planet.
