Caption: Martian rover landing site. Satellite image showing part of a proposed landing site in the Aram Dorsum region of Mars for the ExoMars Rover, planned for launch in 2018. Here, it is possible to se how upper layers of light toned sediments have been eroded, leaving a lower surface that appears dark. The retreating sediment scarp slopes would be an important target for the rover if it ends up going to Aram Dorsum. Imaged by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) satellite.
