This one is quite interesting for if you can see through the picture, there seems to be liquid of some sort between the canyons

Thats cool. I set it as my background

But I don't see the liquid you are talking about, mabey it's because I'm using my older computer with the darker monitor

From the center of the picture if you look a bit to the North East you will see something like a shiny area of sand

This looks like it was formed by relatively recent water erosion.

Notice the flat peaks, and lack of craters in the lower areas.

Holy crap, that's cool! I like the way they have it displayed both from an overview and a topographic layout.

Neat share!

My immediate reaction was...a floor and a wall. Now

"FAKED".

the sattelite has a stereo camera. the 'wall' is the image from bird's eye view. the 'floor' is a computer generated composite, which approximates a lower angle view. so, it is faked(the 'floor' that is). but it's an admitted fake. play, 'match the features'.

Looks kinda fake, doesn't it?

I don't believe it is fake

The picture is computer generated using all the different instruments on the Express to map the surface of the planet.

that's why it looks like funny compared to a regular kodak picture
