Hellespontus Montes in context

July 14, 2014
The Hellas basin is a large impact crater in the southern hemisphere of Mars. It contains a vast plain known as the Hellas Planitia, and its western rim is enclosed by a string of rocky peaks named the Hellespontus Montes. This region was imaged by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA’s Mars Express on 13 January 2014 during orbit 12 750. The smaller rectangle above outlines the region highlighted in the associated Mars Express images. Copyright NASA MGS MOLA Science Team/Freie Universitaet Berlin
