Today's update from the MEX team at ESOC on progress of the VMC Schools Campaign.
Initial image processing complete; all files exported as PNGs, together with the original RAW-format files (i.e. as recorded by VMC on board MEX). Total PNG file size is 702MB. Now the sorting can begin!
And while you're waiting....
On Friday, 22 May (during last week's ESAHangout for the VMC Schools Campaign), students at the Curiosity Lab (Madrid) were deeply occupied in... exploring Mars! And we've got the the video to prove it (see below).
Curiosity Lab is one of the youth groups taking part in the VMC Schools Campaign, and have specifically requested images showing Aeolis Mons. ¡Muchas gracias! to the entire team for sharing this lively video – and best wishes for your VMC project – we can't wait to see it!

PS: The Curiosity lab group have published an update on their VMC Schools Campaign participation in their blog (in Spanish).
