Martian areography tells a story of incredibly violent events. It appears from the many images sent to Earth that it once experienced powerful plasma discharges on a massive scale. Burned and blasted craters, piles of scorched dust covering almost an entire hemisphere, and great trenches that wend across its scarred face lead to the conclusion that lightning thousands or millions of times more energetic than known today devastated Mars.
Steve Smith discussed some of the more unusual features on Mars, presumably caused by those cataclysmic upheavals. Red/blue anaglyph images will provide a unique perspective.
