Mars Poster


This mosaic of Mars is composed of 102 images captured by the Viking Orbiter 1.

The center of the scene shows the entire Valles Marineris canyon system, more than 2,000 miles (3,000 kilometers) long, 370 miles (600 kilometers) wide and 5 miles (8 kilometers) deep, extending from Noctis Labyrinthus, the arcuate system of graben to the west, to the chaotic terrain to the east.

South of Valles Marineris is very ancient terrain covered by many impact craters. The three Tharsis volcanoes (dark red spots), each about 25 kilometers high, are visible to the west. Many huge ancient river channels begin from the chaotic terrain from north-central canyons and run north.
