Mars World Map

In 1659 Dutch astronomer Christian Huygens, using an early telescope, drew the first sketch of a surface feature on Mars, a dark patch know today as Syrtis Major. More than three centuries later the mars global Surveyor is charting the entire planet. Data beamed from the orbiting surveyor have rendered a detailed and true-color map of this seemingly most Earthlike of planets.
