This image provided by NASA shows a view by the Mars Rover Spirit of a sunset over the rim of Gusev Crater, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) away. Taken from Husband Hill, it looks much like a sunset on Earth, a reminder that other worlds can seem eerily familiar. Sunset and twilight images help scientists to determine how high into the atmosphere the Martian dust extends and to look for dust or ice clouds. Ten years after NASA landed two rovers on Mars on a 90-day mission, one rover is still exploring, and the project has generated hundreds of thousands of images from the Martian surface. Now the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum is presenting more than 50 of the best photographs from the two Mars rovers in an art exhibit curated by the scientists who have led the ongoing mission.

This image provided by NASA shows the piece of metal with the American flag on it is made of aluminum recovered from the site of the World Trade Center towers in New York City on Mars Rover Spirit that serves as a cable guard for Spirit’s rock abrasion tool as well as a memorial to the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Mars Rover Opportunity has an identical piece.

This image provided by NASA shows loose, BB-sized, hematite-rich spherules embedded in this Martian rock like blueberries in a muffin and released over time by erosion. The Mars Rover Opportunity found this cluster of them at its Eagle Crater landing site and analyzed their composition with its spectrometers. Hypotheses about their formation have contributed to the story of water on Mars.

FILE- In this undated file photo released by NASA, STS-107 crew members are seen in a group photo. The Space Shuttle Columbia crew perished when the shuttle was destroyed on February 1, 2003, on its return to Earth because of a hole in its wing that allowed in superhot atmospheric gases. It had taken off from the Kennedy Space Center and was to return to Florida after the mission. (AP Photo/NASA, File)

In this image taken from video provided by NASA, astronauts Rick Mastracchio, top, and Michael Hopkins work to repair an external cooling line on the International Space Station on Tuesday, Dec. 24, 2013, 260 miles above Earth. The external cooling line — one of two — shut down Dec. 11. The six-man crew had to turn off all nonessential equipment, including experiments. (Associated Press/NASA)
