The same day, the same planet, two different probes return us extremely contrasting shots.
In the ESA shot all four main volcanoes of Mars appear clearly plus the beautiful plume more than 2000 km long that emerges from the western side of Arsia Mons, the southernmost volcano.
In the NASA shot the four volcanoes appear more shifted upwards for framing reasons, while remaining easily recognizable.
Can you identify the differences?
The plume of Arsia Mons is totally absent, Pavonis is almost totally obscured by a dust cloud, as is the western part of Olimpus Mons!
Although it would be worth playing the “find the differences” game, the matter is anything but a game and casts a shadow of doubt on the credibility and reliability of certain official sources.
However you want to put it, either ESA has added a number of details (including the plume!) or NASA has deleted them, I leave the choice to you!
