NASA Just Released 2,540 Stunning New Photos Of Mars

If it's quiet solitude and beauty you seek, there is no better place than the surface of Mars. Mars has, long ago, earned its moniker as the red planet, but the HiRISE camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) can transform the subtle differences of soils into a rainbow of colors.

For 10 years, HiRISE has recorded gorgeous- and scientifically valuable - images of Mars. Its photos are so detailed that scientists can examine the planet's features at the scale of just a few feet, including the recent crash site of Europe's Schiaparelli Mars lander.

We combed through 2,054 of the camera's latest pictures, released in August, September, and October, to bring you some of the best - and hopefully help you temporarily escape Earth.

A large chasm:

In the image below, the black splotch is where the European Space Agency's Schiaparelli Mars lander crashed. The white specks, pointed out with arrows, are pieces of the lander.

  1. where ever there is hydrogen and oxygen, you can expect the compound (water) to be there

  2. Do you think it's possible that many many years from now, humans can make a technology that will able us to live in there?

    2. Global warming on mars will allow to to sustain life on mars cuz the atmosphere is in the planet, and the planet needs to be warmed to eliberate/let out the atmosphere.
      But i think this will not get to the final, cuz Jesus is coming soon.
      All the best. God bless.

    3. Technically we could "live" on mars right now if we could get the correct resources and technology there, the challenge is getting it there in tact and assembled. So short term it is possible. However, to live and thrive on mars read below

      There are two things that need to happen, The core of mars needs to be restarted... Geologically Mars is pretty Dormant. The reason you need to do this is to create a magnetic field around the planet to aid in holding onto the second thing.

      Mars needs a habitable atmosphere which would take thousands of years to develop and refine/ change mars (terraform) with the proper technologies. Sadly, at this point it is unrealistic to think we will be walking outside on mars like we do earth.

    4. Only thousands of years! We will wait!

      After that it will be second home to us. Beats having to travel to another star.
