Cratered cones and ridges in Isidis Planitia. Beautiful Mars series.
Isolated layered hill in Isidis Planitia. Beautiful Mars series.
THEMIS Image of the Day, April 14, 2016. Small, dark dunes are located on the floor of this unnamed crater in Isidis Planitia. More THEMIS Images of the Day by geological topic.
THEMIS Image of the Day, March 30, 2015. The THEMIS VIS camera contains 5 filters. The data from different filters can be combined in multiple ways to create a false color image. These false color images may reveal subtle variations … Continue reading
This image is located right along the rim of the Isidis impact basin, at the foot of Libya Montes. Here we see iron-magnesium phyllosilicates (cyan). Phyllosilicates are clay and clay-like minerals formed by chemical reactions with liquid water. They are … Continue reading
The UK-led Beagle 2 Mars Lander, thought lost on Mars since 2003, has been found partially deployed on the surface of the planet, ending the mystery of what happened to the mission more than a decade ago. Images taken by … Continue reading
This recent observation is the fifth time we’ve imaged this spot on Mars. We often re-image spots on the surface to search for, or track changes, due to active processes, such as migrating sand dunes. In this case, there isn’t … Continue reading
Terrain near Isidis Planitia. Beautiful Mars series.
This image is located right along the rim of the Isidis impact basin, at the foot of Libya Montes. Here we see the stratigraphy (layering) of different iron-magnesium phyllosilicates (white and pink). Phyllosilicates are clay and clay-like minerals formed by … Continue reading
