Hi all - just stumbled upon these beautiful images taken of Mars surface, everyone a potential screensaver


www.boston.com...

NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been orbiting Mars since 2006 above the Martian surface taking these images using HiRISE (the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera) at resolutions close to pixels per inches. It is mentioned that the images presented are in either 'false colour' ? Go figure or grayscale, but the detail they show is quite something which does raise the old question of why can't they show images of this clarity of our Moon?

Anyhoo hope you enjoy them as much as I did

Fantastic set of photographs!



I can get lost in looking at them. They show such wonderful details, such as the stunning effects of dust devils on the landscapes. The painter in me wants to do something with this series... really.

awesome pictures.
some are just stunning.
it makes me think though, if we can get such clear detailed close up shots like this all the way in mars, why cant we zoom into the mountains of pakistan and afghanistan and find bin laden moving around with his homeboys. oh yeah. he's dead

Amazing photos, starred and flagged.

This is how space exploration should look in the modern age.
