In the image captured by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's HiRISE camera, the trail of the avalanche, which formed a long streak on the surface, can be seen originating from the impact crater.
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Project has been using CRISM and five other instruments on the spacecraft to investigate Mars since 2006.
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been circling the planet since 2006.
But the primary data source was the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which launched in 2006 and contains four otherprimary science instruments in addition to HiRISE and CRISM.
Using powerful 'Shape from Shading' computer software developed by the Space Robotics Group, Dr Tyler was able to provide a terrain map of the area from images taken by the HiRISE camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Through the imaging, scientists have been able to determine that the Beagle probably did make it onto Mars and landed safely.
On Friday, more than 11 years later, European Space Agency officials reported that the Beagle-2 had been finally found -- thanks to extensive detective work based on new photos taken by the high-resolution camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
NASA is the world's most successful space agency at sending rovers and probes to Mars, and past missions have included the Viking 1 and 2 in 1975 and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in 2005.
The NASA spacecraft known as the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is currently studying the Martian surface.
Like a youngster at summer camp, Curiosity - actually, NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter - even sent home a photo showing it had arrived safe and sound at its destination.
During the past five years, researchers used OMEGA and NASA's Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer, or CRISM, instrument on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter to identify clay minerals at thousands of locations on Mars.
The maps contain 74,000 images from Mars Global Surveyor's Mars Orbiter Camera and more than 13,000 high-resolution images of Mars taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera.
In further confirmation, a new image transmitted by a second NASA satellite, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, showed signs of severe ice damage to the lander's solar panels.
