MARS RECONNAISSANCE ORBITER HIRISE IMAGES
April 6, 2016
o Cubism in the Western Rim of Holden Crater
Where the crater rim is well illuminated, we can see blocks
of material with different colors, representing diverse rock types.
o Faulted Layers in Collapse Pits
What formed these layers, and what caused them to collapse into pits?
o An East Watershed for Jezero Crater
Jezero Crater is candidate future landing site that contains sediments
deposited by at least three ancient rivers.
o A Boulder Festival in Masursky Crater
Why are there so many boulder trails here?
All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
