Tourism Opportunity At Valles Marineris
Here on Earth somebody has proposed building a glass-bottomed walk jutting out from the rim of Arizona's Grand Canyon. (Story and artist's rendering are here.) The view down is about 4,000 feet, less than a mile.
Imagine something similar at Valles Marineris with its 4 mile drop. Bring your camera and a telephoto lens!
Gravity 1/3 of Earth's will make building such a thing much easier, too. Or perhaps it'll just be a lot longer...
