MGS Photos of the Mars 98 Landing Site

These images of the landing zone for the Mars Polar Lander, taken by the camera aboard NASA's Mars Global Surveyor, confirm that this strange, layered terrain in the south polar region represents a dramatic departure from the now-familiar Martian landscapes observed by the Viking landers and Mars Pathfinder. In December 1999, the next lander in a steady series begun by Pathfinder will set down in this uncharted territory to dig for traces of frozen, subsurface water.
