This graben (fracture) in Memnonia Fossae is noteworthy because one can still see large blocks on the floor. These blocks most likely dropped down from above when the fracture opened up.

Note: this THEMIS visual image has not been radiometrically nor geometrically calibrated for this preliminary release. An empirical correction has been performed to remove instrumental effects. A linear shift has been applied in the cross-track and down-track direction to approximate spacecraft and planetary motion. Fully calibrated and geometrically projected images will be released through the Planetary Data System in accordance with Project policies at a later time.
