Data has been pouring back to earth from the Mars Express orbiter. While looking at streams of binary code might not make for fun viewing, these animations of Mawrth Vallis sure do. A deep chasm on the surface of Mars, the valley has unique geographic features and could someday provide clues to the habitability of the red planet. For now, enjoy the visceral fun of flying through it.
