About the Mars Art Gallery

The Mars Art Gallery was formally launched in March 2005 to serve as a showcase for artistic renditions of Mars based on data returned by a variety of Martian robotic missions, including Mariner 9, the Viking orbiters, Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Pathfinder, and the Mars Exploration Rovers. These renderings were originally created to serve as illustrations for the many public lectures I give on the subject of Mars exploration. If you are in the greater Chicago area, check out Presentations About Mars to learn more.

To facilitate site searches, a site map is provided that lists all the pages on the site along with a brief description of each page.

A brief biography of Jim Plaxco is also available for those seeking more information about the artist/webmaster.

This site was hand-coded using standard HTML, CSS and Javascript. The end product was tested using the Mozilla Firefox browser, my personal favorite. I have made no attempt to validate the code on this site using Microsoft's Internet Explorer as I have far more confidence in Firefox's adherence to accepted standards. I strongly encourage visitors to click on the Firefox icon below, download, install, and start using a browser that has far fewer security vulnerabilities and does a much better job of implementing web standards. You won't be sorry.
