Take a closer look at Holden Crater! NASA shares the pic

The US space agency NASA has shared a clear view of the Holden Crater in southern Margaritifer Terra displaying a series of finely layered deposits on its floor.

NASA's Mars orbiter spots massive dust storms bigger than US swelling on Red Planet - Watch

NASA's Mars orbiter spots massive dust storms bigger than US swelling on Red Planet - Watch

Images from the orbiter's wide-angle Mars Color Imager (MARCI) show each storm growing in the Acidalia area of northern Mars, then blowing southward and exploding to sizes bigger than the United States after reaching the southern hemisphere.

NASA orbiter detects small troughs growing on Mars which may become 'spiders'

Using NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) data, researchers have detected cumulative growth of erosion-carved troughs that may be infant versions of larger features known as Martian "spiders".

Lakes, snowmelt-fed streams on Mars formed much later than previously thought

Lakes, snowmelt-fed streams on Mars formed much later than previously thought

NASA says these results provide insight into the climate history of the Red Planet and suggest the surface conditions at this later time may also have been suitable for microbial life.
