Pictures of Mars

These pictures taken by NASA's HiRISE camera are like works of art. Its amazing how beautiful the shades of colors and patterns are. Sometimes I forget that so many patterns of art originate from nature.

The HiRISE camera is the most powerful camera ever sent into space. The ability to capture detail is really stunning as they are able to measure topography down to a .25 meter. The camera has been dubbed the "People's Camera" as soon people will be able to request sites for the HiRISE camera to capture. Which in my opinion is very cool that they are including the community in this project.
