Mariner 7 Television Pictures: First Report


Initial results of the television experiment carried by Mariner 6 were recently reported (1). This is a similar report of the television experiment aboard Mariner 7. These reports are presented primarily to communicate significant results to the scientific community as rapidly as possible. A more comprehensive, but still preliminary, review of the results of both experiments, and of their implications concerning the atmosphere and surface of Mars, is in preparation for submission to this journal.
