This Is the First Photo Ever Taken from the Martian Surface

NASA’s 1976 Viking mission to Mars did all that was hoped for it — except find Martians

The Syrtis Major Volcanic Province. Acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express Satellite, this image depicts a detailed region of the Martian Nili Fossae Graben system. This system is an area of great interest to geologists due to the variety of its landscape. The graben system contains numerous troughs, plateaus, impact craters and depressions.

Gale crater as seen by Mars Odyssey orbiter Gale Crater, home to NASA's Curiosity Mars rover, shows a new face in this image made using data from the THEMIS camera on NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter. The colors come from an image processing method that identifies mineral differences in surface materials and displays them in false colors.

Veteran spacecraft reaches 60,000th lap around Mars, no pit stops

The Curiosity Mars rover dwells in Gale crater, pictured here with data from the Mars Odyssey orbiter. The false-color image notes the different mineral compositions of the crater as determined over Odyssey's many orbits of the planet.

Nanedi Valles #wow

This image captured by NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft shows both branches of Nanedi Valles, close to the point where they join to form a single channel.

Large and small, hundreds of thousands of craters scar the surface of Mars, hollowed out by a multitude of asteroids and comets that impacted the Red Planet throughout its history.

An ancient Mars might have had rings, and the planet may someday boast them again, according to a model published today in Nature Geoscience. Scientists think a prominent basin on Mars may have been formed by large object colliding with the planet some 4.3 billion years ago, Astronomy magazine writes. That collision should have formed rings of debris, which overtime consolidated into moons, according to the new model.

Location of Odd Hybrid Star HV 2112

Astronomers have apparently found the first Thorne-Zytkow object, a strange hybrid star thought to form when a red supergiant swallows a neutron star.
