Incredible footage from Mars has offered mankind a glimpse at a huge ice-filled crater on the Red Planet.
Scientists at the European Space Agency have released a never-before-seen video of the Korolev crater.
The video is made of reconstructed images strung together to give the impression of a drone flying over the giant divot in the surface of Mars.
The imagery was created using topographical data, captured by a high-resolution camera onboard the Mars Express probe.
This information was then used to create the impressive 3D landscape.
The European Space Agency launched the Mars Express in 2003 – with the probe taking six months to reach the orbit of the Red Planet.
Pictures and information have been relayed back to Earth in the 17 years since.
The Korolev crater measures and impressive 50 miles wide and is in the northern hemisphere of the planet.
It was named after Soviet rocket engineer Sergei Pavlovich Korolev who was born in Ukraine in 1907 and died in Moscow, Russia, in 1966.
Ice is found year-round in the crater as the one-mile deep hole is perfectly shielded from the elements of the planet outside the rim.
While probes and machines have been sent to Mars over the past two decades, billionaire businessman Elon Musk has now made it his mission to get mankind on the Red Planet too.
In an email to staff last month, he declared: “We need to accelerate Starship progress dramatically and immediately.
“Please consider the top SpaceX priority (apart from anything that could reduce Dragon return risk) to be Starship.”
