MARS GLOBAL SURVEYOR SHOWS OFF IMAGES FROM EXTENDED MISSION

     Like any good camera-wielding tourist, NASA's Mars Global
Surveyor continues to shoot stunning pictures as it begins the
second extension of its successful mission.

     Some newly released images show a 3-D view of layers on
the martian surface that may be ancient sedimentary rocks,
while others show an unusual spiral-shaped cloud over the
giant Arsia Mons volcano.

     The images are available at:
http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/mgs and
http://www.msss.com/mars_images/moc/1yearExtend/ .

     Launched Nov. 7, 1996, Global Surveyor entered the
martian orbit on Sept. 12, 1997. The mission has studied the
entire Martian surface, atmosphere, and interior, and has
returned more data about the red planet than all other Mars
missions combined.

     Mars Global Surveyor is managed by the Jet Propulsion
Laboratory for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington,
D.C. JPL is a division of the California Institute of
Technology in Pasadena. JPL's industrial partner is Lockheed
Martin Astronautics, Denver, which developed and operates the
spacecraft. The Mars Orbiter Camera is operated by Malin Space
Science Systems, San Diego, Calif.
