The United Arab Emirates’ Hope spacecraft has created a new global map of Mars using 3,000 images. The map will help future missions navigate the planet’s surface and identify locations to explore. The images show Mars in true color, which is different from how it has been photographed in the past due to the types of cameras used. The map also includes information about the planet’s topography and geology. This new map is an impressive development in the study of Mars, and scientists hope that it will be used to uncover new information about the planet and its history.
