New Mars Photos

NASADunes Dubbed Kolhar

For many of us, since grade school, we’ve referred to Mars as the “Red Planet.” Yet, as these newly released photos from NASA suggest, the planet is far from resembling a fiery tomato.

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) was launched into space in 2005 and has been rotating around the planet ever since. The spacecraft has captured thousands of remarkable images that it transmits back to Earth every month, but this particular batch of photos – 1,035, to be exact – captured the second smallest planet in the solar system like never before.

These stunning shots provide us with a better perspective of Mars, and if you haven’t had enough here, you can view more at Bored Panda.
