Did meteor bombardment scar Phobos?

Phobos is the largest of the two moons of Mars. Deimos is so small that studying its surface has been problematic for astronomers because it cannot be readily observed from Earth. Only the Viking 2 orbiter, and more recently, the HiRise camera onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured close up images. Phobos, on the other hand, has been examined by Earth stations and by satellites sent to Mars orbit.

In the image above, Stickney crater is visible on the left. Stickney is a ten kilometer-wide excavation that is nearly the size of Phobos itself. In previous Thunderbolts Picture of the Day articles, rocky bodies with craters almost as large as themselves have been discussed. As was pointed out, the “impact” craters should have blasted the objects into fragments, but little sign of the collisions is visible other than the craters. In the case of Phobos, the moon is 28 by 20 kilometers in size, so Stickney crater is nearly half as large as the moon..............
