Mars as an Exoplanet
Mars as an Exoplanet Data from the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft are helping scientists unravel the mystery of the Red Planet’s evolution from a warmer, wetter world to the cold, dry place we know today. The insights gained will help them better judge which exoplanets might be hospitable to life as we know it. This feature, imaged by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, is a portion of an inverted fluvial canal in the Aeolis/Zephyria Plana region near Mars’ equator.
