Smooth Material in Utopia Region Basin

Smooth Material
The high resolution of HiRISE makes it an excellent instrument to study the terrain for possible missions to Mars, both human and robotic. This observation, in the Utopia region, can help to locate a good place to land a vehicle for future exploration of potential mud volcano areas and also to assess surface roughness.
