HiRISE Channel Surfing

Well the Martian floodgates have opened, and amazing images from the PSP (Primary Science Phase) of the HiRISE instrument on the MRO are pouring in. Rather than show them all, Top Men will occasionally provide amazing or curious samples of the best. In this case we have picked a rather curious one.

- In this image, from high above, the terrain simply appears as large dunes.
- But as we zoom in, this image shows some rather interesting channels.
- And this full-res image shows some full-fledged Wohba-worthy curiousness.

Hardcore explorers can download the entire full-res image here (ALERT: 127 MB - JPEG 2000)
