Well, for very little money, you can now buy a 5 Megapixle camera, 8 Megapixles are state of the art for serious amateurs, so what kind of pixel-monster would you expect NASA to use on a critical mission?
Sorry, but according to an interesting article , the camera they use for the exploration of Mars only has 1 Megapixle. However, it’s the size of the individual pixels that makes the difference.
