Mars as art

mars as art

Spacecraft have imaged the surface of the planet Mars
for nearly four decades, providing insights into the
history, climate and geology of our nearest neighbor.
This exhibition showcases selected images returned by
spacecraft from NASA and European Space Agency,
which have been selected for their aesthetic rather
than scientific value. These images are actual images
of Mars, taken from orbit and from the surface by
spacecraft that have visited there.
