This image shows spidery channels eroded into Martian ground. It is a Sept. 12, 2016, example from HiRISE camera high-resolution observations of more than 20 places that were chosen in 2016 on the basis of about 10,000 volunteers’ examination of Context Camera lower-resolution views of larger areas.

Yesterday NASA released an article on their news page talking about the amazing work being done by our volunteers on Planet Four: Terrains. Thousands of people have been using the project to have a close look at the Martian polar surface and identify fascinating features such as the “spiders” you can see in the image above.
