Caption

Mars imaged by the MarCO-B (Mars Cube One-B) CubeSat (partly seen at right) at a distance of 7,600 kilometers. MarCO-B is one of two experimental CubeSats that were orbiting Mars as communication relays for the entry, descent and landing (EDL) phase of NASA's InSight Mars lander. They beamed data directly back to Earth without having to wait for the lander itself to upload the data, and without having to use the slower Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) as an intermediary. Image obtained on 26th November 2018.
