Caption

Water-bearing rocks on Mars. Satellite image of water-bearing rocks (bright) in Noctis Labyrinthus on Mars. These rocks have minerals that contain water. Many of the depressions in Noctis Labyrinthus contain water-bearing minerals, suggesting that water was available and persistent in this region during the Late Hesperian to Amazonian epochs on Mars, a time when the climate is believed to have been dry and cold. Imaged by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
