Using data transmitted by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, filmmaker Seán Doran edited an incredibly high-resolution timelapse that unveils a rippling, rugged crater on the Red Planet’s dusty surface. Doran stitched together images captured by the spacecraft’s HiRISE camera, creating a short video that appears to set the imprinted, extraterrestrial landscape in motion. The stunning footage is the latest in his archive of stellar composites—watch his mesmerizing works focused on Jupiter and the sun’s evolution—and you can find more on YouTube. (via Kottke)
