This map shows footprints of images taken from Mars orbit by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera as part of advance analysis of the area where NASA’s InSight mission will land in 2018. The final planned image of … Continue reading
This full-resolution image is centered on a bright deposit at the end of a gully channel. The bright deposit does not seem to be present in an image acquired several years earlier than 2009, and is likely to be very … Continue reading
Valleys on east rim and wall of Darwin Crater imaged by Viking — Viking Image 571B01. Beautiful Mars series.
This enhanced-color sample reveals the incredible diversity of landforms on some Martian plains that appear bland and uniform at larger scales. Here we see layers, small channels suggesting water flow, craters, and indurated sand dunes. [More at link]
Unusual dunes on a crater floor. Beautiful Mars series.
The mound in the center of this image appears to have blocked the path of the dunes as they marched south (north is to the left in this image) across the scene. Many of these transverse dunes have slipfaces that … Continue reading
Possible chloride-rich deposits in Terra Sirenum. Beautiful Mars series.
Southern crater rim. Beautiful Mars series.
Sand dunes are scattered across Mars and one of the larger populations exists in the Southern hemisphere, just west of the Hellas impact basin. The Hellespontus region features numerous collections of dark, dune formations that collect both within depressions such … Continue reading
