Sandlot. Beautiful Mars series.
Small, fresh, and martian – By “fresh,” (and sometimes “recent”), we are talking in geological terms only. Beautiful Mars series.
Dark sediments in the Medusae Fossae Formation. Beautiful Mars series.
Channel near Hale Crater. Beautiful Mars series.
On a field of sublimation – Sublimation is a process where a solid directly turns into a gaseous state. Beautiful Mars series.
This unnamed, approximately 30-kilometer diameter crater, formed in the Southern highlands of Mars. Our image shows regions of geologic diversity within, making this an interesting spot for scientists to study how different Martian processes interact with each other. Gullies, or … Continue reading
Slide on down. Beautiful Mars series.
This image (making a stereo pair with ESP_041350_1455) shows an elongated depression from three merged craters. The raised rims and ejecta indicate that these are impact craters rather than collapse or volcanic landforms. The pattern made by the ejecta and … Continue reading
Gullies in Ariadnes Colles. Beautiful Mars series.
This image covers a steep west-facing slope in southwestern Ganges Chasma, north of the larger canyons of Valles Marineris. The spot was targeted both for the bedrock exposures and to look for active slope processes. We see two distinct flow … Continue reading
