The layered geological history of Mars is laid bare in this colour image from NASA's Curiosity rover showing the base of Mount Sharp. The image was taken on August 23. Scientists enhanced the colour in one version to show the Martian scene under the lighting conditions we have on Earth, which helps in analyzing the terrain. The pointy mound in the centre of the image, looming above the rover-sized rock, is about 300 metres across and 100 metres high.

The gravelly area around Curiosity's landing site is visible in the foreground. Farther away, about a third of the way up from the bottom of the image, the terrain falls off into a depression (a swale). Beyond the swale, in the middle of the image, is the boulder-strewn, red-brown rim of a moderately-sized impact crater. Farther off in the distance, there are dark dunes and then the layered rock at the base of Mount Sharp. Some haze obscures the view, but the top ridge, depicted in this…

Evidence shows ancient Mars sometimes had water on its surface. Yet climate modelers struggle to produce scenarios where its surface is warm enough to keep water unfrozen.

CURIOSITY SELF-PORTRAIT This self-portrait of NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows the vehicle at the "Mojave" site, where its drill collected the mission's second taste of Mount Sharp. The scene combines dozens of images taken during January 2015 by the Mars Hand Lens Imager camera at the end of the rover's robotic arm.
