Francis Rocard, Alfred S. McEwen – MARS, Une exploration photographique

by Atelier EXB

79,00

Valles Marineris, Olympus, Arcadia Planitia, Elysium Mons, Planum Boreum, Icaria Fossae and Noachis Terra are all Martian regions flown over by the NASA observation probe put into orbit in 2005, at an average distance of 300 km, to study the planet’s surface. From these tens of thousands of records of unprecedented resolution, Xavier Barral has extracted a series of nearly 200 photographs by keeping a 6 km wide area for each shot.

This selection offers a new vision of Mars that reveals the geological and mineralogical contours of this mythical planet. An unsuspected landscape that has been taking shape for more than three billion years. These images are open to multiple interpretations and they send us back to ourselves.

To continue this photographic exploration, designed by Xavier Barral and Sébastien Girard, texts by the astrophysicist Francis Rocard and the professor of planetary science Alfred McEwen, detailed captions by the planetologist and geophysicist Nicolas Mangold as well as a planisphere of Mars offer us keys of interpretation and put these enigmatic images in their context.
