NASA Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE Imagery Release 24 October 2007
Onboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, the HiRISE camera offers unprecedented image quality, giving us a view of the Red Planet in a way never before seen. It’s the most powerful camera ever to leave Earth’s orbit.
|Small Impacts at Slope Streak Apexes
Dark slope streaks where small impact craters are visible at their apexes.
|Basal Exposure of South Polar Layered Deposits
Layering, possibly laid down over the past few million years, at the base of exposed on a scarp.
|Low-Order Inverted Streams near Juventae Chasma
Plains northwest of Juventae Chasma, one of the Martian canyons that are part of the equatorial Valles Marineris system.
|Catastrophic Outflow Features in Tharsis Region
Streamlined features in the northwest Tharsis region, carved by catastrophic floods.
|Crater with Wind Streak
It is unknown what makes this wind streak two-toned with a darker halo surrounding the brighter interior.
|South Polar Layered Deposits with Surface Modification
A scarp exposing the south polar layered deposits, which are thought to record recent climate variations on the Red Planet.
|Thumbprint Texture on Dark Dunes in Rabe Crater
Why are the dunes dark compared to the bright layered material within the crater?
|Possible Ancient Salt Deposits within Unnamed Crater in Terra Cimmeria
The presence of such salts is intriguing, and strongly suggests that conditions were favorable for water near or at the surface in the geologic past.
