Nope these are not computer generated abstract art pieces. They are in fact photographs taken of Mars by HiRISE, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera. Since 2006, NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has been orbiting Mars, currently circling approximately 300 km (187 mi) above the Martian surface, photographing the planet for several years now at resolutions as fine as mere inches per pixel. Suberb! See more here.
