cost” he commented Masursky condudes his lecture series by Susan Dudley Referring to that single picture as “very important” he said it showed the Martian surface as very cratered like the Moon A new theory emerged which “concluded there was no chance of life on this sterile planet” Mariner mission also indicated Mars is a of a heavily cratered planet Masursky said The theory sterile cratered unevolved planet prevailed The 1969 Mariner 9’s photographs showed that most of Mars does not resemble the moon thereby giving hope to the theorists The entire planet is not cratered Masursky
