This image, taken with the Wide Angle Camera (WAC), shows the outer rim and inner peak ring of Raditladi basin. The basin's smooth floor and well-preserved peak ring structure indicate that Raditladi is relatively young. The concentric troughs along the floor near the basin's center formed by extension (pulling apart) of the surface and are similar to those seen in Caloris basin and Rembrandt basin. The bright areas around the peak ring are an excellent example of hollows, shallow depressions that may have been formed by the loss of volatile materials.
