FUSE-MOLA: Mars Once Had Oceans

Greg Shirah, Vladimir Krasnopolsky, Paul Feldman, NASA GSFC Scientific Visualization Studio, Catholic University, Johns Hopkins University

This visualization shows how Mars might look with an ocean at -500m
where the lowest point on Mars is about -8000m and the highest point
is about 22000m. Data from The FUSE spacecraft and from the Mars Global
Surveyor-MOLA instrument where used to support this theory.
