Dunes in Mars
Dunes in Proctor Crater

From NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter: “Dunes in Proctor Crater, located in the southern hemisphere of Mars where it was winter at the time this image was taken. Scientists think the bright tones are carbon dioxide or water frost.”

Many more images of Martian aeolian landscapes here.

  • Yep! Can anyone figure out why we need plans to go up there? Maybe to survey the place? I'd like to own some of those dunes. I'll pay $50 an acre. Do you hear that NASA? Bet there is at least 10,000 people who'd buy up there. Let me name a dune and I'll pay $100.
