You would know what the hole actually is if you've watched Mars Attacks.

A long collapsed magma chamber?

I second that. Probably erosion from the frozen carbon dioxide becoming liquid at certain temps, much like water erodes the ground beneath us.

Mars doesn't have a highly active magma center. You can see this effect from space because it doesn't have a very strong magnetic field. So I highly doubt it had anything to do with Magma chamber. If Mars had a lot of activity, we would be seeing volcanos on it's surface and a stronger atmosphere.

I'll back the sink hole theory for now, too.

Not to worry anyone. I am 100% positive that in the coming years our illustrious and glorious scientists will tell us exactly why there is a hole there. It wont be based on any concrete evidence, or observation not even testable data, they will just imagine why it's there and we will have our answer. You know like all of science that is currently faith based on extremely circumstantial evidence. 

 

Science the modern days faith based religion.

In the past it had extremely active volcanism: witness Olympus Mons

Too "nice" to be an impact crater, not active enough to be volcanic

Yep, sinkhole, melting carbon ice etc.

 

OR ET digging for Oreo's....
