I was inspired to do this piece after NASA's probe completed it's close flyby in 2015. The new images revealed spire-like mountains impossible in heavier gravity and more color than scientists had imagined. This landscape uses NASA topographical data to create a plausibly accurate horizon for the astronaut.
