NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has detected widespread deposits of glacial ice in the mid-latitudes of Mars. This map of a region known as Deuteronilus Mensae, in the northern hemisphere, shows locations of the detected ice deposits in blue.

This view of the American flag medallion on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity was taken by the rover's MAHLI camera during the 44th Martian sol on Sept. 19, 2012. The flag is one of four 'mobility logos' placed on the rover's mobility rocker arms.

A sea of dark dunes, sculpted by the wind into long lines, surrounds the northern polar cap covering an area as big as Texas in this false-color image from NASA's Mars Odyssey, the longest-working Mars spacecraft in history.

Mars Odyssey All Stars: Polar Dunes

As crater size increases, craters become more complex. This moderate size crater contains a central peak, created by rebound of molten material just following the impact. This image was captured by NASA's Mars Odyssey on Sept. 8, 2010.

Central Peak Crater

This wind eroded crater is located between Eumenides and Gordii Dorsa. The ejecta of the crater is more resistant to the wind than the surrounding materials in this image from NASA's Mars Odyssey.

Researchers have found deposits of impact glass preserved in Martian craters, including Alga Crater, shown here. The detection is based on data from the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The development of the Mars rover Curiosity's capabilities for drilling into a rock on Mars required years of development work. Seen here are some of the rocks used in bit development testing and lifespan testing at JPL in 2007.

By high summer, the extensive dune fields of the north polar region are completely defrosted and the number and variety of dunes are readily visible. This image was captured by NASA's Mars Odyssey on August 31, 2010.

The complex region of channels at the top of this image, captured by NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft, are lava channels. These channels are called Olympica Fossae.

In some regions of Mars the relative ages of different materials can be determined. In this image, captured by NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey, the younger lava flows of Daedalia Planum are on top of the older Terra Sirenum materials.
