We keep searching for peace, isolation and inner harmony, we keep wondering whether and where on earth would we be able to get this. But now we needn’t look any further, NASA has shown us that there is no better place than the surface of Mars. Mars which earned its reputation as the red planet, but thanks to HiRISE camera which is aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), this can very well transform the subtle differences of soils into a rainbow of colors.
HiRISE captured splendour
For the last 10 years, HiRISE has managed to record gorgeous – and scientifically valuable – images of Mars. Its photos are so minutely 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.
A temporary escape
While analysing all the combined 2,054 of the camera’s latest pictures, released in August, September, and October, we have tried to accumulate some of the best pictures – and hopefully, help you temporarily escape Earth.
A pretty huge chasm
While we aware that a deep cleft in the surface of a planet is known as chasm and here NASA has so perfectly captured the chasm on MARS.
NASA’s next mission
Back in November 2015, Administrator Bolden of NASA reaffirmed the mission of sending humans to Mars. He had set a marker that on 2030 as the date of a crewed surface landing and noted that planned 2020 Mars rover would support the humanitarian mission.
Schiaparelli Mars lander
The black spot which we are able to see in the picture is where the European Space Agency’s Schiaparelli Mars lander crashed. The white specks pointed out with arrows, are pieces of the lander.
This image resembles a zebra skin while in reality, it is a dune field stuffed with oval shaped mineral deposits.
We are amazed
We have seen many pretty pictures on the web but this one surely is such an icing on the cake. A North Pole dune field nicknamed “Kolhar,” after Frank Herbert’s fictional world.
An altogether different world
What an impact crater on Mars it seems as if there are stains of cigarettes how awesome the world on other side be.
NASA keeps a watch on everything
NASA sure monitors gullies like this for small landslides – and any water that melts in the warm sun to form darker-colored mud.
Mars in its complete glory
So when are we planning our next vacation and this time it’s no mean place it’s going to be MARS where a mission is going to come alive by 2020 hopefully.
