Hellas Basin

Image of the Hellas Basin Huge areas of Mars in the southern hemisphere are covered with bowl-shaped craters. Most of these craters were blasted out when the planet was hit by chunks of interplanetary debris billions of years ago. One huge crater, called the Hellas Basin is more than 1600 kilometers wide and six kilometers deep - that's 1,000 miles across and four miles deep!
