Ten years after the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) was sent to the Red Planet, NASA is reminding everyone of the great strides the craft made in space exploration (with this super cool video).

Celebrating one of the longest continuous studies of Mars, NASA has compiled this neat two-and-a-half minute video, summarizing many of the MRO’s achievements. It includes discovering evidence of ‘yardangs’ – rock shapes formed by wind erosion – as well as extreme close-up images of the Gale Crater.

Fitted with one of the largest and most powerful cameras ever sent into space, the MRO sent back 264 terabits of data, including an incredible 216,000 images of Mars’ alien surface.
