Japan is developing 8K cameras to capture images of Mars and its moons
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency and Japan National Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) are developing 4K and 8K cameras with the goal of capturing images of Mars and its moons, Phobos and Deimos.
This will be through the next exploration mission that will be launched into space. It is expected that the spacecraft will be launched in 2024, Alian will arrive by 2025, and it will take a longer period for the return capsule to arrive.
It will regularly capture images of the red planet and send it to create a series of images with the rest of the originals stored on a recording device included inside the capsule that will eventually return to Earth loaded with the images captured by the camera.
The mission of the MMX spacecraft is not limited to capturing pictures only, but also it will descend to the surface of the Phobos moon and collect samples from it, and if that mission succeeds, it will be the first high-quality images taken of the planet Mars and its moons from close range through those cameras, and this provides humanity with an unprecedented view of the world.
