Mars Surface With Detailed Map
The scientists at the U.S. Geological Research Center of Virginia took them 16 years to complete pictorial map of Mars.
– New map brings together discoveries about Mars that came up last year and gives us a lot of information to better understand the planet, said Dr. Kenneth Tanaka, the leader of this research.
Most of the surface was shaped at an early Noah epoch, which are retained on Mars between 4.1 and 3.7 billion years. Then the Red Planet was hit by asteroids and most occurred greatest erosion of the surface layer.
