US-MARS-LANDING SITE 2

This figure shows the zone originally proposed by the Mars Volatiles and Climate Surveyor (MVACS) science team for the Mars Polar Lander mission, which spanned the region from 72· to 78·S latitude and 170· to 230·W longitude. This figure shows the location of the primary (blue) and secondary (white) landing ellipses, with the white lines representing higher resolution survey images. The selection criteria were to find a place that was relatively flat and relatively smooth, which displayed characteristics of the south polar layered materials. The inset (upper left) shows the location of the landing zone with respect to the south polar residual (year-round) ice cap. The base map used here is a mosaic of Viking Orbiter images from the U.S. Geological Survey. AFP PHOTO/NASA (Photo by NASA / AFP) (Photo by -/NASA/AFP via Getty Images)
