    Imgur has a post on new Mars photos

    If it’s quiet solitude and beauty you seek, there is no better place than the surface of Mars. Mars has earned its moniker as the red planet, but the HiRISE camera aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) can transform the subtle differences of soils into a rainbow of colours.

    For 10 years, HiRISE has recorded gorgeous – and scientifically valuable – images of Mars. Its photos are so detailed that scientists can examine the planet’s features at the scale of just a few feet (OP: highest possible for HiRISE is 0.3 m/px for those metric users of ours), including the recent crash site of Europe’s Schiaparelli Mars lander.

    Going through 2,054 of the camera’s latest pictures, released in August, September, and October, here are some of the best.

    There's some wallpaper-worthy stuff here, too. Nice find, Rusakov!

      A completely accidental find, but you're welcome!
