Lower Crevasse Leading into Isidis Planitia

Leading into Isidis Planitia
This public suggestion wanted to get a closer look at an area in Isidis Planitia that might have been carved out by landslide. The origin of that landslide may have been a meteorite impact. HiRISE resolution can help us see the different composition of layers of terrain, possibly the meteorite composition, and the material from the higher elevation areas that fell into the basin.
