Planet MarS And Life In It

The planet Mars is one of the most photographed objects in the Solar System . 




This is a picture of Mars captured by the Hubble Space Telescope on October 28, 2005, when Mars was just about to make its closest approach to Earth. If you look carefully, you can see a regional duststorm



This is a picture of Mars captured by NASA¡¯s Mars Exploration Opportunity rover . It shows the Victoria Crater on the surface of Mars. Opportunity slowly made its way up to the edge of the crater, and then crawled down inside to examine the rock walls for past evidence of liquid water on the surface of Mars.



This looks like a plain old image of a crater on Mars, but it¡¯s much more special than that. The inset box on the left-hand side is NASA¡¯s Phoenix Mars Lander descending to the surface of Mars. The image was captured by NASA¡¯s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter which had been positioned to watch the spacecraft descend.




The largest canyon in the Solar System is the amazing Valles Marineris on Mars. Stretching more than 4,000 km long, and as deep as 7km, it would cross the United States if put on Earth. This is a photograph of just one portion of the canyon, captured by ESA¡¯s Mars Express spacecraft.




This is oneof the most beautiful, high-resolution images of Mars ever captured. Olympus Mons and the other large volcanoes are on the left-hand side of the photo. Valles Marineris is down at the bottom, and the northern polar ice cap is up at the top.




This photo of what looks remarkably like a female figure with her arm outstretched, was taken on Mars.



Alien life: What seems to be a human-like Martian is pictured on Mars



Painstaking: Space enthusiasts spent four years analysing this image, which on much closer inspection shows the 'alien'



Say cheese: The mystery image was captured by Nasa's explorer vehicle, Spirit.
