Boulder Population in Cerberus Fossae

Boulder Population in Cerberus Fossae

Count the Boulders
These boulders, based on their size, were likely set in motion by a Marsquake, and their trails in this picture are still visible, so the wind hasn’t been able to erase them yet. This is the type of activity that we hope the InSight lander will be able to detect. This image is located in Cerberus Fossae.
