The European Space Agency (ESA) ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter, launched in 2016, sent back some spectacular images of the Martian surface.
The Orbiter is equipped to take pictures of Mars surface in glorious 3D.
The above image may look like a hairy structure, but it is actually a false-color image of hundreds or even thousands of dust devils – tornadoes of Mars – in the Terabia region of Mars.
The image below shows the Columbus crater on the southern hemisphere of Mars – which NASA has discovered that sulfur particles contain dehydrated minerals.
Another amazing shot: a picture of NASA's Insight plane, which stretched across the surface of Mars at the beginning of the month, the first time a European orbit had photographed Insight – even though NASA's last trip, Mars, identified Insight From the course in December.
InSight's heat shield, landing shell and shell shield can also be seen in small spots.
Mars devils dust
A stereoscopic image shows more stripes of dust, blue, on the edge of a massive crater. Throw on a pair of basic 3D glasses to appreciate the full effect.
The following images show the end of the Burroughs crater about 120 miles northwest of the planet's northern ice cap. Some of the northern lanes are considered to be entirely components of "almost pure water ice".
