Schiaparelli in colour

Composite of the ExoMars Schiaparelli module elements seen by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on 1 November 2016. Both the main impact site (top) and the region with the parachute and rear heatshield (bottom left) are now captured in the central portion of the HiRISE imaging swath that is imaged through three different filters, enabling a colour image to be constructed. The front heatshield (bottom right) lies outside the central colour imaging swath.

The colours have been graded according to the specific region to best reveal the contrast of features against the martian background.

These images are in raw image geometry rather than map-projected, and north is about 7º west of straight up.

3D view in Acheron Fossae

This anaglyph image showing part of the Acheron Fossae region on Mars provides a 3D view of the landscape when viewed using stereoscopic glasses with red–green or red–blue filters.

The image is based on data acquired by the nadir channel and one stereo channel of the High Resolution Stereo Camera on Mars Express on 4 May 2016 during orbit 15641. The main image is centred on 36ºN/142ºW and the ground resolution is about 18 m per pixel.

Perspective view in Acheron Fossae

This perspective view in the Colles Nili region on Mars was generated from the high-resolution stereo camera on ESA’s Mars Express.

The scene is part of a region imaged by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express on 4 May 2016 during orbit 15641. The main image is centred on 36ºN/142ºW and the ground resolution is about 18 m per pixel.

Topography_of_western_Acheron_Fossae

The colour-coded topographic view shows relative heights and depths of terrain in the western portion of the Acheron Fossae region on Mars. Browns and whites represent the highest terrain (lower left), which transition through red, to yellow, green and blue in the upper right, representing progressively lower terrain.

The image is based on a digital terrain model of the region, from which the topography of the landscape can be derived.

The region was imaged by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express on 4 May 2016 during orbit 15641. The image is centred on 36ºN/142ºW and the ground resolution is about 18 m per pixel.
