Some of the freshest and youngest fractures yet found are in the Littrow area. The sharpest gash in this view runs along the right side of one of the much older Littrow rilles. The surface material in this area appears to be soft; blocks are very rare and most craters appear subdued. Therefore, it seems likely that the fresh fractures here, which are smaller than those in the preceding figures, will not survive long before they are obliterated by mass wasting.-K.A.H.
