Close-up of the famous 'Face of Mars' taken from the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft. The 'face' is revealed to be just another mesa in the Cydonia region of Mars.

The panoramic camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity produced this approximate true-color mosaic image from a position at the edge of "Endurance Crater."

The north polar cap of Mars, with water ice clouds sweeping over the plains of Vastitas Borealis. The ice cap spans roughly 1000 kilometers. Observed by the Mars Express orbiter in May 2014.

This view combines many images taken by Opportunity's panoramic camera (Pancam) from Oct. 23 to Dec. 11, 2007. Images taken through Pancam filters centered on wavelengths of 753 nanometers, 535 nanometers and 432 nanometers were mixed to produce an approximately true-color panorama. Some visible patterns in dark and light tones are the result of combining frames that were affected by dust on the front sapphire window of the rover's camera.

Nous sommes dans les moyennes latitudes martiennes, au niveau du grand bassin d'Hellas. Les cratères situées devant nous ont un aspect tout à fait particulier : leur fond est relativement plat, peu profond et étrangement sculpté... Des images radar acquises par la sonde Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter ont en fait révélé qu'ils sont occupés par un glacier géant de glace d'eau (voir cette vidéo). Aujourd'hui recouverts par une couche de sol martien, ces glaciers se seraient formés à ces latitudes…

What makes these mid-latitude craters in the Hellas Basin unusually grooved, flat and shallow? Radar images from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter suggest huge glaciers of ice buried under Martian dust and dirt.

Climbing up Mt. Sharp in the middle of Gale Crater, NASA’s Mars rover  Curiosity  has discovered two-tone veins of minerals that reveal multiple episodes of water flowing through rock — even after the lake that once filled the bottom of the crater had ceased to be.
