NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the 2001 Mars Odyssey mission
for NASA’s Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C. The Thermal
Imaging System (THEMIS) was developed by Arizona State University,
Tempe, in collaboration with Raytheon Santa Barbara Remote Sensing.
The THEMIS investigation is led by Dr. Philip Christensen at Arizona
University. Lockheed Martin Astronautics, Denver, is the prime
for the Odyssey project, and developed and built the orbiter. Mission
operations are conducted jointly from Lockheed Martin and from JPL, a
division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.

In effetti Marco la Mars Odyssey è una missione che fa parlare poco di se ma che rimanda immagini di Marte con una risoluzione favolosa (17/18 metri!!).
Grazie per averla ricordata, lo meritava.
