The Fractured Features of Ladon Basin Space Wallpaper
About this Image
Interconnected craters Sigli and Shambe, believed to have formed when a large meteorite fragmented in to two pieces just before impact in this amazing space wallpaper. High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) nadir and color channel data taken during revolution 10602 on 27 April 2012 by ESA’s Mars Express have been combined to form a natural-color view of the Ladon Valles region. Centered at around 18°S and 329°E, this image has a ground resolution of about 20 m per pixel.
