India probe transmits new Mars image

The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) has published a detailed 3D image of Mars captured by its robotic probe Mangalyaan.

The image which was shot by Mangalyaan in late July is of the Ophir Chasma, a canyon in Mars, Isro said.

The agency added that the Ophir Chasma is part of the largest canyon system in the solar system.

India’s launch of its Mars mission in September 2014 marked the first time a nation successfully sent a mission to the red planet on its first attempt.


The image was captured at an altitude of 1,857km with a resolution of 96m, Isro said


A chasma is an elongated, steep depression on the surface of a planet
