Double Impact

December 14, 2013
This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows two craters that formed at the same time by a split meteoritic impactor. Long after they formed, these craters have been eroded, degraded, and other materials have been deposited on and within them.
