Viking Lander 1 (Thomas Mutch Memorial Station)
Caption Throwback: The lander, which has a diameter of about 3 meters, has been precisely located in this image, and likely locations have been found for the heat shield, backshell, and parachute attached to the backshell. The lander location has been confirmed by overlaying the lander-derived topographic contours on the HiRISE image, which provides an excellent match. (Read the full caption.)
