It’s well known I’m a space geek, and these latest images from the ESA’s Mars Express blew me away. Taken by the 9 year old Mars satellite, the images provide amazing detail of our planetary cousin. Click the photos to see them large.
New images from ESA’s Mars Express show the Syrtis Major region on Mars. Once thought to be a sea of water, the region is now known to be a volcanic province dating back billions of years.
Syrtis Major can be spotted from Earth even with relatively small telescopes – the near-circular dark area on the planet stretches over 1300 x 1500 km.
