Beautiful Crater on Mars

Here's a wonderful view of Victoria Crater on Mars, taken by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. One of the Mars rovers spent about two years prowling around the edge of this crater.

I love how its structure is so much like that of a drop of water:

I have sometimes wondered if anyone could ever predict the existence (and number) of these crown points at the top of the recoil.
