AN ANCIENT RIVER DELTA lies at right foreground inside Eberswalde Crater. This view looks south, with Holden Crater (154 km wide) in the distance. Exploring the delta's sediments would be a planetary geologist's dream, but landing the Mars Science Laboratory rover safely there may prove highly difficult given the rough terrain.
