A large poster print of Mars.
View of a Valles Marineris from the poster. Largest canyon system on Mars and in the Solar System
Of all the planets in the Solar System other than Earth, Mars is the most likely to harbor water, and perhaps life. In addition the Mars meteorite ALH 84001 perhaps contains evidence for microscopic fossils of Martian bacteria. This find still remains controversial though.
Created on February 22, 1980 by the Viking 1 Orbiter. The image is centered on the 3000 km long and up to 8 km deep Valles Marineris. On the left can be seen the three Tharsis volcanoes
