Mars Photo of the Day - Feb 18 2012

Today's Image of Mars shows Echus Chasma, which was once one of the largest sources of water on Mars, spanning 100km long and 10km wide and cutting into Lunae Planum north of Valles Marineris. Echus Chasma was the source of water that carved Kasei Valles, a 1780 km (1100 mi) long set of flood carved channels on Mars.
