The images were snapped and transmitted back to Earth via the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), which has been in orbit since 2005. Displaying Mars in all of its galactic glory, each of the 1,032 photos gives us unique views of the planet’s landscape. We already know that living on Mars IRL would pose more than a few challenges to our fragile human forms, like radiation exposure, ridiculous temperatures, and who knows what else, but those threats in no way diminish the beauty of these photos.
