Spectacular 3D image of Mars from Mangalyaan

Ophir Chasm as imaged by Mangalyaan

Cool image time! Using an image taken by India’s Mars Orbiter Mangalyaan from about 1,153 miles altitude, Indian scientists were able to create a 3D projection of Ophir Chasm, one of the side canyons of Valles Marineris, the solar system’s largest canyons.

The image itself had a resolution of about 96 meters per pixel.
