The Hills Have Spirit

Mars Exploration Rover Spirit is climbing into the Columbia Hills and up the slope of “Husband Hill”. Spirit has also discovered possible evidence for water in the region during the distant past, though the water was likely not as extensive as it was on Meridiani Planum. The Columbia Hills and surrounding terrain all sit within Gusev Crater.

If you have a pair of red/cyan glasses you will enjoy the 3-D anaglyph on the left. You can obtain a free pair of these glasses (just pay for shipping) with a written request to the address provided on the Mars Unearthed website (where many more anaglyphs are available for your enjoyment.)
