SUMMARY: This image, taken by the European Space Agency's Mars Express, is of a region on Mars called Eos Chasma; it's on the southern end of the Valles Marineris. The highest point of the plateau is 5,000 metres (3.1 miles) above the valley floor. Scientists know the higher plains are a much older feature because they have a number of ancient large impact craters that have remained for billions of years.
