These images acquired by the DLR-operated High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on board the ESA Mars Express spacecraft show Greeley Crater on Mars. It was named after the US scientist Ronald Greeley, who passed away in 2011. In addition to being a pioneer in the field of planetary geology, he was a member of the HRSC experiment team from the very outset, and was also Co-investigator of the HRSC.
