Image of the Day - 30
Arcology Ruins? / Southern Arena Colles / Mars
Arcologies are massive (self sufficient) habitations that can house substantial populations – a town or city contained in a single building. Orbital imagery of Mars has identified the ruins of possible arcologies 35 miles to the North of where NASA's Perseverance Rover is exploring Jezero Crater. So far these have only been imaged by the lower resolution CTX context camera of the Mars Reconnaissance Observer spacecraft. The image analysis below examines the two candidate arcologies that are closest to Jezero Crater. They are larger than most of the candidate arcologies identified in Cydonia, with a different internal structure. Richard C.Hoagland's internet radio show has been regularly covering Perseverance Rover's mission to Jezero Crater.

As always with these outsized images the reader is advised to use the "View" then "Full Screen" options from the menu bar at the top of their browser screens to see more of the image clearly.
Alternatively, press the F11 key to enter the Full Screen mode, and then F11 again to return to the normal view.
