Attention all crew. As per consensus, we're dropping Probe #7 into the atmosphere. The probe's trajectory will overfly all three of the proposed landing sites. I've chosen a local time of just after dawn, as the lengthy shadows will make it easier to spot features on the ground.

Decelerating probe now. Alas poor #7. Firing braking thrusters and running live camera feed through to the C-Links.
