New Mars photo reveals scars from Red Planet’s ancient past

The European Space Agency’s Mars Express spacecraft captured a stunning new view of the Red Planet’s complex surface geology. 

The new image, taken using the orbiter’s High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC), focuses on the flanks of a vast volcanic plateau called Thaumasia Planum. Deep surface fractures and water-carved valleys stream down the side of this volcanic region, offering clues about Mars’ ancient past.
