Nice article over at the JPL website about the team dedicated to bringing us the awesome images from the Mars rovers.

"We’re what’s under the hood," explained Helen Mortensen, former MIPL (Multimission Image Processing Lab) team leader and development engineer. "You won’t see us at press conferences, but we’re behind the creation of the images and the safe movement of the rovers."

Excellent news!

"The technology designed for the space program has now made it into the commercial world, and anyone who uses a digital camera and a home computer to download and process pictures is using MIPL technology," said Zamani.
