[profile] raselhague, have you seen this shot from the Mercury Messenger craft?

This is going to sound fairly loony, but this looks like a splatter effect to me, almost as if an asteroid impacted into an active or dormant volcano hard enough to penetrate the magma chamber and burst it open.

My first though was that it was an old volcano that had been worn down exposing previously buried lava tubes, but I have no idea what would wear it down??

Or am I talking my usual hogwash? :o)
