The surface of Mars reflects a diverse palimpsest landscape, here you can find a selection of some of my favourite High Resolution Imaging Sciecne Experiment (HiRISE) images. The colours used in the images may seem weird, this is because they have not solely been created with the part of the electromagnetic spectrum with which we as humans use to see. Rather they are false colour images created using infrared wavelengths. I have split the images into specific ‘science themes’ following the HiRISE team’s format and all image credit goes to NASA/JPL/Arizona. You can find the image identification number in the image caption and use it to search for the full image here.
