A space artist pictured Gale Crater in the low light of sunset. 8 km). Calderas are produced when the magma chamber collapses, usually during eruptions. This overhead image is from the Mars Express High Resolution Stereo Camera. underground. Magma rising through the mantle creates hot areas on the crust. Magma that breaks through the crust becomes lava.

These workers will soon place Global Surveyor in a protective canister for movement to the pad. High-gain antenna Main engine on propulsion module Winglike solar array GLOBAL SURVEYOR’S COMPONENTS Drag flap for flight control Scientific instrument payload 30 Surveyor looks like a flying box with wing-like projections extending from opposite sides. When fully loaded with propellant—fuel—the spacecraft weighed 2,342 lbs (1,060 kg). Most of Surveyor’s mass lies in the equipment module containing the spacecraft's science payload—electronics and science instruments.

The Thermal Emission Spectrometer studied the composition of rock, soil, ice, atmospheric dust, and clouds. Most important, the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter measured the heights of surface features, which were used to produce the most accurate Martian topographic map of all. READYING GLOBAL SURVEYOR Workers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory prepare Global Surveyor for transfer to a launch pad at the Cape Canaveral Air Station. The spacecraft is already mated to its booster launch vehicle, at bottom.
