Historical Context:
Heart Lake, mapped here, lies in the north, among similar lakes and streams that held water several hundred million years after better-known ancient lake environments on Mars, according to 2016 findings. Data from the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter on NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor orbiter, combined with a mosaic of images from the Thermal Emission Imaging System camera on NASA’s Mars Odyssey orbiter, are coded here as white and purple for lower elevations, yellow for higher elevations.
