Pictures from the nation’s Mars Orbital Mission, aka “Mangalyaan,” present a part of the sixty two mile large and 317 mile lengthy Ophir Chasma canyon. On prime of the photograph (under) taken from an altitude of 1,857 km (1,154 miles), the Indian Area Analysis Company (ISRA) created a 3D render of the landmark (above, and backside).

That is not dangerous for the most cost effective Mars mission ever at $seventy three million.
