About this image

This image is of Olympica Fossae, located further eastward than yesterday's image and closer to Alba Patera. Note the complexity of the deeper main channel and the nearby collapse channels. The deeper channel may represent an unroofed lava tube or open main lava channel. The floor texture seen in the main channel in both yesterday's and today's images may represent the surface of one of the last lava flows hosted by the channel.
