Geologic art from Mars

Any time you need a bit of a lift, take a look at the rotating image show at the UA's HiRISE camera web page. The camera is one instrument on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

These are amazingly detailed pictures of Mars but they are spectacularly beautiful images. [right, a crater on the north polar layered deposits]
