Mars PHOTOS: Volcanoes, Craters, And Ice Sheets On Mars (PICTURES)

NASA's HiRISE camera, the most powerful camera ever sent into space, is currently doing a tour of duty on Mars, and has been returning stunning pictures of the Red Planet's "trees," gullies, and even avalanches.

Through a program called "HiWish," NASA invited the public to submit suggestions for where the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter should point its lens--earning the camera the nickname "the people's camera."

The first eight images of Mars landscapes chosen by the public are in!

Check them out in the slideshow below, then see more incredible photos of space, including gorgeous photos of mars, stars, and earth, as well as images from NASA's WISE sky-mapping spacecraft.
