Caption: Mars pyroxene mineral map. Satellite image showing the distribution of pyroxene across the surface of Mars. The colour scale represents the abundance of pyroxene, from low (blue) to high (red). Pyroxene results from volcanic processes that trace the evolution of the planet's interior, its chemical composition acting as a tracer of the evolution of the temperature and pressure inside the planet. Image based on data obtained by the OMEGA instrument on ESA's (European Space Agency) Mars Express satellite.
