NEVER BEFORE SEEN PHOTOS RELEASED: MARS ALMOST LOOKS LIKE A ‘LIVING PLANET’ TODAY
The cameras have been able to transform many subtle differences of the soil found on Mars and turn it into all colors of the rainbow. Now NASA has revealed 2,540 stunning never before seen photos.
The HiRISE camera has captured images of Mars that are very valuable scientifically, not to mention stunning to see. The photos captured by the camera are in fact so detailed that the scientists are able to examine the features of the planet at a scale of only a few feet. One of the features is the recent crash site when the Schiaparelli Mars lander of Europe crashed.
