This 360-degree panorama was shot from Bea Hills, near Yungay, Chile, in the Atacama Desert. Aside from the people you can spot walking around on the hill (or trying to find some shade in the 100-degree heat), there are no living organisms in this photo. In this part of the Atacama, there is too little water for life. Scientists study it because in this respect it is much like Mars.

The erosion patterns on the rocks are created by the sand-blasting action of wind, not by water.
