Here’s the most recent HiClip – a collection of images from the HiRISE camera aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, assembled and set to music by the HiRISE imaging team at the University of Arizona. These recent images show some fascinating desert-type terrain across Mars, resembling Earth deserts except an order of magnitude drier than anywhere on Earth! But regardless of their current state, many of the features we are seeing on Mars today indicate a much wetter past.
