This image is of a little green alien meant to represent the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission capability.  The character is wearing a green and red flowered 'Hawaiian' shirt and has two black cameras slung around its neck.  There is one large eye (like a Cyclops) and a smaller one next to that.  The alien has large, floppy ears and antennae atop its head.
