Even Mars Have Worms! NASA Reveals Images From The Red Planet’s Version Of Frozen South Pole
If you think you know a lot of things about the red planet, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have yet again recently revealed just how alien the red planet can be. NASA explains that the image has shown the coldest part of the red planet, where circular pits are created in dry ice to form strange patterns.
The Frozen South Poles Of Mars: What Does It Indicate?
According to reports revealed by Daily Mail, NASA explains that a lot of the Martian landscapes contain features that are familiar to ones we find on Earth, like river valleys, cliffs, glaciers and volcanoes. However, even Mars has an exotic side too, with landscapes that are unusual to Earthlings, which NASA experts believe to be located at the South Pole region of the red planet. It was found that the recent images that NASA has revealed are the polar caps made from carbon dioxide or dry ice, which is noted for being not naturally occurring on the Earth.
Furthermore, Phys Org reports that from the comfort of home, the volunteers have been exploring the surface of Mars by reviewing images from the Context Camera (CTX) on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and identifying certain types of seasonal terrains near Mars' south pole. These efforts by volunteers using the "Planet Four: Terrains" website have aided scientists who plan observations with the same orbiter's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera. HiRISE photographs much less ground but in much greater detail than CTX.
It was found that the said images were taken by the Imaging UltraViolet Spectrograph (Iuvs) on the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution mission (Maven). Meanwhile, Nick Schneider of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder has explained that Maven has obtained hundreds of such images in recent months, giving some of the best high-resolution ultraviolet coverage of Mars ever obtained.
Ultimately, Schneider is believed to be presenting the results at the American Astronomical Society Division for Planetary Sciences meeting in Pasadena, California, which is being held jointly with the European Planetary Science Congress.
