If you are searching for beauty and peaceful solitude, there will be not such a good place as the planet Mars’s surface. Prepare yourself for an excellent and exciting journey through some astonishing images of Mars.
This planet is also called the Red Planet. Also, the ancient Romans used to admire this planet because of its color, and the Egyptians also called this planet ‘desher’ which means ‘the red one.’
However, the camera HiRISE aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter or MRO of NASA can actually transform the precise differences of the soils on it into a beautiful rainbow with different colors.
For about ten years, this camera recorded astonishing, gorgeous, as well as scientifically significant images of this planet.
These images are full with details, so scientists had the ability to examine the features of the planet at a scale of several feet only, including the crash site from recently of the Schiaparelli Mars lander of Europe.
The latest 2,054 pictures of the camera have been released in the month of August, then September, as well as October. Here are some of the most beautiful and interesting pictures which will hopefully be helpful for you to temporally escape the planet Earth.
NASA Picture 1: A huge chasm:
NASA Picture 2: Here is the place where the NASA agency may land the following nuclear-powered mission to the planet Mars in 2020s:
NASA Picture 3: Rusty colored and dark dunes in the Russell Crater:
NASA Picture 5: This is a dune field on the North Pole, which is also called Kolhar, after the fictitious world of Frank Herbert:
NASA Picture 6: Another probable landing place for the ExoMars mission in the 2020s, run by the European Space Agency:
Picture 7: Carbon dioxide which turns itself from a solid state to gas state, carves out the strange and interesting shapes on the South Pole of Mars:
Picture 8: Falsely coloring the image actually makes a huge dune and the gullies of the dune look like they are colored blue:
Picture 9: The skin of a zebra? No, we are kidding – it is actually dune area which is speckled with some oval-shaped mineral deposits:
Picture 10: Another huge fully which scientists monitored with the camera:
Picture 11: A crater on the Red Planet impacted in recent times:
Picture 12: A rising of a steep in the Eastern Noctis Labyrinthus:
Picture 13: The crater known as Cerberus Palus, showing off the layered sediments:
Picture 14: Glacial landscape which appears strangely dazzling:
Picture 15: NASA constantly pays attention to such gullies for some minor landslips, as well as some water which is melting in the Sun in order to form some mud which is with a dark color.
Picture 16: The so-called ‘spiders’ are in fact eruptions of some dust which are created by the way in which the surface of the planet cools or warms:
NASA Picture 17: These are dunes shaped by the wind, which move across the cracked soils of the Nili Patera. Also, the green colored bar on the picture is a leftover from the image processing:
NASA Picture 18: Interesting texture spotted in the North Sinus Meridiani region:
NASA Picture 19: The region called Ceraunius Fossae is a one which is dominated and well-known by volcanic eruptions and huge cracks:
NASA Picture 20: Terrain which is close to the equator of Mars:
