Mars Express over water-ice crater

May 29, 2013
Artist’s impression of Mars Express set against a 35 km-wide crater in the Vastitas Borealis region of Mars at approximately 70.5°N / 103°E. The crater contains a permanent patch of water-ice that likely sits upon a dune field – some of the dunes are exposed towards the top left in this image. The image of the crater was acquired on 2 February 2005 with a ground resolution of approximately 15 metres per pixel. Copyright ESA/DLR/FU-Berlin-G.Neukum
