Carl Sagan, in his very popular (1980) TV series, 'Cosmos',
showed pictures of "The pyramids of Elysium" taken by the
Mariner 9 mapping of Mars in 1972. This picture is reproduced on
page 129 of his book, Cosmos; and on page 130 he has the
following footnote about these Elysium pyramids:

"The largest are 3 kilometers across at the base, and 1
