This is one of the most fascinating images of Mars I’ve ever seen. The perspective—captured by Mars Express—makes it feel like I’m standing under our closest planetary neighbor, looking up at its south polar ice cap and its billion-year-old cratered highlands. In other words, this is Mars’ nether regions.
This amazing image shows 90 percent of Mars's surface, imaged in ultra-high detail by the stereo camera aboard the European Space Agency's Mars Express.
The European Space Agency' Mars Express spacecraft has discovered "large volumes of water ice" hiding only 65 feet underground the red planet's surface, in the Phlegra Montes mountain range. It could be used by future human explorers.
