When the Mars Exploration Rover, Opportunity, landed on Meridiani Planum in January 2004, it quickly found what it had been sent from Earth to find: evidence of liquid water in the Martian past.
Meridiani Planum
Full Resolution
This mosaic was made from images taken at infrared wavelengths in daytime and nighttime by the Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) on Mars Odyssey orbiter.
Martian Mosaic
Full Resolution
A false-color mosaic focuses on one junction in Noctis Labyrinthus where Mars canyons meet to form a depression 4,000 meters (13,000 feet) deep.
Canyon Junction
Full Resolution
The battered region of Arabia Terra is among the oldest terrain on Mars.
Arabia Dunes
Full Resolution
On the southwest edge of the immense volcanic region of Tharsis, lava from its giant volcanoes flowed down to meet the old cratered landscape of Terra Sirenum.
Terra Sirenum
Full Resolution
What triggered a Martian landslide? Landslides are common features in canyons on both Earth and Mars, and they happen the same way.
Noctis Landslide
Full Resolution
Dunes are often found on crater floors. In the winter, at high northern latitudes, the terrain is covered by carbon-dioxide ice (dry ice).
Frost-Covered Dunes in a Crater
Full Resolution
Gale Crater forms a large natural repository for much of Martian geologic history.
Gale Crater's History Book
Full Resolution
This is an image of a central pit of an impact crater in the Martian ancient highlands.
Colorful Streaks
Full Resolution
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit acquired this false-color image on Mars during the rover's 746th Martian day, or sol, after using the rock abrasion tool to brush the surfaces of rock targets informally named "Stars" (left) and "Crawfords" (right).
Spirit Rover Studies Rock Outcrop at 'Home Plate'
Full Resolution
This is a small volcano superimposed on the flanks of a larger one of the Cerberus Tholi.
Small Floral-Shaped Volcano
Full Resolution
This picture was taken during the Martian summer with only small patches of ice remaining at the surface; they show up as bright, somewhat blue, spots on slopes that provide some shading from the Sun.
Sand Dunes Near the North Pole
Full Resolution
This crater, formed in 2008, exposes shallow, clean ice that is not uncommon in the middle-to-high latitudes on Mars.
Icy New Impact
Full Resolution
This unnamed impact crater is about 8 kilometers in diameter and contains numerous gullies.
