    As I spend a lot of time stumping around the great outdoors, the "Earthist" in me thinks that Mars is sadly in need of some real weather. To soften the lines a bit.

    These flybys show something that a single photo doesn't. In any arid landscape on Earth you can find a relatively unweathered patch of terrain and your eye and brain make adjustments to Mars photos accordingly.

    Good job. I anxiously await the Chaos terrains.
