Is there water on Mars? Photo of Stunning Crater from the European Space Agency

Neighboring Planet Mars, Need technology Millyarderi Elon Musk's breakthroughs are not fell from the agenda in recent years due to the tasks held by the scientists. The dimensions of the presence of water on the Red Planet are the beginning of the cravings. The European Space Agency (ESA) has published a photograph that attracts quite interest from Mars in this context. The crater who resembled a tree stump was once a large area covered with water.

The European Space Agency (ESA) has captured a stunning photo of a Mars crater resembling a tree stump with concentric rings. The bird's eye view of the tree-shaped crater was taken by the CASSIS camera on Exomars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) in June.

TGO was aired from the Baykonur Space Base in the south of Kazakhstan in 2016 and returns to the Red Planet for about four years.

However, such as the rings on a tree log, the crater also has rough fractures considered to the expansion and shrinkage of the water ice. The crater is involved in the northern plains of Acidalia Planitia who had hosted a wide ocean.

ESA revealed that the unusual image has been pulled in 51.9 ° K / 326.7 ° D of 51.9 ° K / 326.7 ° D in TGO on 13 June 2021 in the TGO.

At the same time, 2015 is the Martian (MARSLI), the Fictional Astronaut Mark Watney is passed by Acidalia Planitia to be saved after the Mars is stranded on Mars.

In the statement made from ESA to the photo, "This special crater is full of water-ice-rich sediments based on millions of years ago. This feature can be easily mixed with a tree stump with characteristic concentric rings.

Actually the photo is an impressive bird-eye view of an ice-rich crater in Mars. Tree rings provide instant images of the Earth's past climate and are very differently created in this crater, the patterns in this crater also reveal the details of the history of Mars.

On the other hand, one of the remarkable features in the crater deposits, the presence of SW semi-circular and polygonal broken patterns. These features appeared as a result of seasonal changes in the temperature that causes the expansion and shrinking loops of ice-rich material and end the development of fractures.

Just as it is in the world, Mars' slope caused the seasons, but unlike the Earth, the slope of the Red Planet has changed significantly in a long time period.

On the other hand, the ESA's Exomars program consists of two tasks. The first is TGO, reached Mars in 2016 and began the fully science task in 2018. Due to the early release of the Parachute to TGO, the Failed Schiaparelli landing tool falling on the surface of the Mars.

Schiaparelli is no longer anything but a grumpy black spot surrounded by rusty red sand.

The second task of Rosalind Franklin and a surface platform will be held this year. Rosalind Franklin from the person who discovered the name of London-born scientist and the structure of DNA, will be launched in the south of Kazakhstan in September 2022.

The cruise built in the UK will be able to delete 2 meters of the Mars surface and collect examples from the regions that are not affected by radiation.

The statement made from Esa on the subject was called:

"Rosalind will go down to the surface of Franklin, sample the soil, to analyze the composition and to search for the evidence of life."
