JAXA announced that Japan’s previously announced Mars satellite exploration mission will include capturing the red planet and its satellite at 8K resolution. The mission, to be carried out by JAXA and NHK, is scheduled to be broadcast live in the same year that NASA sent humans back to the moon. Together, the two agencies plan to develop super HD cameras to capture these images from orbit. JAXA announced its MMX imaging program on September 10, saying they and NHK will develop 4K and 8K cameras capable of photographing Mars and its satellites. Assuming that the future mission is successful, this will be the first time that ultra-high-resolution images of the planet and its satellite have been captured at such close range, which will provide us with an unprecedented view of the outside world. The MMX spacecraft for this mission is currently under development in JAXA and the agency intends to complete the mission in 2024. The goal of the mission is to understand the origin of the Martian satellites and how the Martian system evolved over time. NHK, which previously demonstrated its 8K technology, will develop the Ultra HD camera. < / P > < p > so how will JAXA manage to send these images from Mars back to earth? It won’t actually send it back, because MMX will eventually be a sample collection mission, which means it will send the samples back to earth. In order to obtain 8K images, JAXA plans to transmit some of the images to earth and store the rest of the data in “recording devices,” which will be installed in the capsule, which will eventually return to earth with the sample collection mission.
