Re: Real images of Mars

Interested in helping identifying features in MRO images as part of the HiRISE team?

Check out HiRISE Clickworkers

Help direct scientists to the features that interest them — catalog HiRISE images.

HiRISE images are huge! A single image, zoomed in all the way, is more than ten computer screens wide and high. It would take a person a long time to systematically examine those 100 screens completely at full detail, even ignoring the significant time it would take to download a full image. Although it's possible for a scientist or other person to zoom in to areas that look promising (you can do that using the HiRISE online image viewer if you're curious), that will tend to overlook small features that appear in unexpected places, and those would be interesting to know about. With enough volunteers, a systematic inspection of the images at all scales may be possible.

Swirls of Rock in Candor Chasma (MRO/HiRISE)

Higher resolution image and caption - imaged 12 Dec 2006

This image shows spectacular layers exposed on the bottom of Candor Chasma, which is a large canyon in the Valles Marineris system.

The floor here is approximately 4 km below the canyon rim. The layers are made of sand- and dust-sized particles that were transported here by either wind or water. This canyon may have been filled to its rim by these sedimentary layers, subsequently eroded away, most likely by the wind. The elongate hills may represent areas of rock that are stronger due to differences in the size of the sedimentary particles, chemical alteration, or both.

One of the most eye-catching aspects of this scene are the intricate swirls that these layers form. Sedimentary rock generally accumulates in horizontal layers. These layers, however, have been folded into the patterns that we see today. Folding of the layers that are exposed here may have occurred due to the weight of overlying sediments.

Understanding the geologic history of this region may provide clues into the history of water on Mars, because these layers may have accumulated in shallow lakes and may have undergone chemical reactions with this water. The presence of certain kinds of chemical reactions between water and rock can release energy that could have sustained habitable oases in these areas.

Real as it gets until we can see it with our own eyes.
