A nice wrap-up on Mars Express achievements today!
Mars Express Spacecraft Operations Manager Michel Denis sent in anote pointing out that, according to ScienceWatch.com, in the 'Top 10 papers on planetary science of the last 10 years', the most-cited papers (5 out of 10) are from Mars Express data and scientists (ranking 1, 2, 4, 6 and 9). In the same list, quite a number of papers are Cassini- and Huygens-related. Full details via: http://www.sciencewatch.com.
As Michel mentions, this is a nice continuation of the 'Top 10 Science Insights of the Decade' in the magazine Science (December 2010) where, with all sciences together, 'Wate on Mars' appears as one of the ten (with Mars Express mentioned by name!). -- Daniel
