The Red Planet has been given the Ordinance Survey treatmentMore
Take a moment this morning to doff your space helmet to the good people of Ordinance Survey, who have created the first ever map of Mars.
Using data from Nasa, OS have outlined 7% of the surface of the red planet in an effort to help plan the next Mars landing project in 2019. Cool, huh?
Incidentally, Game Of Thrones author George R R Martin wrote a beautiful piece for the Guardian last year on why Mars has captured the human imagination for so long.
