Image of exposed rock laters on Mars, seen by the MRO Mars High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment in the Argyre Region.

Impacts are the most ubiquitous geologic features in our solar system. Roughly 1600 named craters (and countless lesser pits) scar the Moon's ancient surfaces. On Earth, where wind and water continually wear down the land, the census of confirmed impact craters stands at just 176.

Mars, a mixed bag of ancient and modern terrains, lies somewhere in between. Over the years spacecraft have glimpsed ever-finer features in the Martian landscape. These days, the HiRISE camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) can pick out objects only 0.3 metres in size; the High Resolution Stereo Camera on the European Space Agency's Mars Express is no slouch either, with a ground resolution of 2 metres.

Made in Italy with a combination of silk and modal (Modal is a processed bio-based textile made from reconstituted cellulose from beech trees.) 

Our products are fair trade and made with eco-friendly ink.
