Sixteen seventh graders in a science class at Evergreen Middle School in Cottonwood, California, have discovered what appears to be a pit linking an underground lava tube to the surface of Mars.

Working as part of the Mars Student Imaging Program offered jointly by NASA and Arizona State University, the middle school students have submitted the site as a candidate for high resolution imaging by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
