About this image

Today's VIS image shows part of the floor of Becquerel Crater, including a large layered deposit. Becquerel Crater is located in Arabia Terra and is 165km (102 miles) in diameter. There is also a Becquerel Crater on the moon - both named for A.H. Becquerel. Becquerel was a French physicist who, with the Curies, received the Noble Prize in physics in 1903, and was the first person to discover evidence of radioactivity.
