Candidate ExoMars landing site in Mawrth Vallis. Beautiful Mars series.
Catastrophically cratered. Candidate future landing site in the Oxia Palus region. Beautiful Mars series.
Oxia Planum has been recommended as the primary candidate for the landing site of the ExoMars 2018 mission. [HiRISE imaged the Oxia Planum landing site last summer.] ExoMars 2018, comprising a rover and surface platform, is the second of two … Continue reading
Later this month, scientists and engineers will meet to choose which two, of four possible landing sites for the ExoMars 2018 mission, should be retained as candidates. ExoMars is a joint two-mission endeavour between ESA and Russia’s Roscosmos space agency. … Continue reading
This image is part of a proposed landing site for the ExoMars Rover, planned for launch in 2018. We can see how an upper layers of light toned sediments have been eroded, leaving a lower surface which appears dark. The … Continue reading
A good place to explore — candidate ExoMars landing site near Hypanis Valles. Beautiful Mars series.
One of the important roles of HiRISE is to take high resolution images of potential landing sites for future landing missions. This image is of an area called Aram Dorsum (also known by its old name, Oxia Palus) that has … Continue reading
