Mars Odyssey Science: The First Year and BeyondThe 2001 Mars Odyssey orbital science mission officially began in late February, 2002. The spacecraft carries three science instrument packages: the Gamma Ray Spectrometer suite (GRS), the Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS), and the Martian Radiation Environment Experiment (MARIE). The GRS suite of three instruments includes the Gamma Sensor Subsystem (GSS), the Neutron Spectrometer (NS) and the High Energy Neutron Detector (HEND). THEMIS consists of two cameras sharing a single set of telescopic optics: a 5-band visible imager and a 10-band thermal infrared imager. Spacecraft and instrument performance have been nominal to this point in the science mission.
