Scientists had expected the Landing site a Low Plain where streams May once have run. Would be covered by a Blanket of material deposited by the water although the pictures showed a Rocky surface the Lander apparently avoided any geologic hazards that project officials had feared might imperil the touchdown. In the Corner of the first picture could be seen one of Viking s round Metal Landing footpads the rivets on the Footpad were visible and the Footpad cast an Oval Shadow in the late afternoon Sun As it rested on the soil among the rocks.
