Amazing video uses space probe's 12,500 orbits to reveal the beauty of Mars
- Video was put together using images taken over ten years by Mars Express
- Nine detectors swept over the surface in sequence from nine different angles
- This data was then processed into three dimensional images by scientists
- Most of Mars' surface has been imaged at resolution better than 100 metres
Mars Express, launched in 2003, has now orbited the planet nearly 12,500 times, providing scientists with unprecedented images and data collected by its range of scientific instruments. The data have been used to create an almost global digital topographic model of Mars' surface, providing a unique flyby video.
