o Channel in the Cerberus Palus Region

  The channel might have originally been carved by water and later
  draped by lava that partially drained away.

o An Icy Crater on Mars

  Mars has ground ice at high latitudes, and when new craters form
  there, they dig up the ice.

o Colorful Sediments near Hellas Basin

  The sediments may have been emplaced by hydrothermal activity
  associated with the impact event that created Hellas Basin.

o Opportunity's Journey at Endeavour Crater

  Opportunity currently holds the US space program's all-time record
  for distance traversed on another planetary body.
