Watch: Fly Over the Volcanos, Canyons, Craters of MarsEmbark on a stunning journey across the Red Planet's landscape
Scenes of the Mars landscape from NASA's Curiosity rover have grown familiar over the last year. We haven't, however, seen a dramatic, flyover video of the landscape showing the planet's canyons, volcanoes and craters - until now. On Oct. 28, 2013, the European Space Agency released this stunning video showing images based on data collected from the ESA's Mars Express. The video offers an extraordinary vantage point for viewing everything from the planet's deepest canyon to its ancient river beds and impact craters.
The Mars Express was launched on June 2, 2003, and arrived at Mars six-and-a-half months later. Since its arrival, it has orbited the planet nearly 12,500 times. The images were taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera and released by the DLR German Aerospace Center as part of 10-year anniversary celebrations for the Mars Express.
