Orcus Patera Fracture

And the Land was Fractured
This fracture appears in the west middle of Orcus Patera. It’s not as large as one in the south. However, it seems to be near another fracture to the east. This may indicate that the eastern fracture line and this one may have been connected. The connection could have been broken by many processes or by a meteorite that created a crater near the two.
