The extraordinary shot of the Perseverance rover

SuperCAM’s chariot of perseverance has immortalized a collection of rocks that resemble the backbone of a prehistoric animal. That’s what it is.

The perseverance rover subordinate NASA Caught another unusual one picture on me Mars. In the new shot, it is actually possible to like a group of rocks Which is very similar to fossil from U.S giant creaturespecifically from Backbones. Of course, these are just rocks – technically, even fossils of dinosaurs and other animals are rocks – but there is no organic origin behind these strange Martian elements. As far as we know, the red planet Billions of years ago it had great lakes, floodplains, and actual oceans and rivers on its surface, but scientists believe it may have been inhabited before. MicroorganismsHe’s definitely not an upper class animal like I am vertebrates. It is believed that microbes and bacteria may still be present today in the underground lakes discovered on this planet. perseverance and Curiosity of The US space agency is also on Mars to look for cluesexistence of life (Basically in the past) On their wanderings they often come across rocks and other curious elements, such as a “spine”.

The snapshot of the fictional Martian fossil was shared on the Flickr file of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) engineer Kevin M. Gill. The scientist identifies himself as a “Martian photographer” on Twitter, and also manages data collected by rover cameras. In the case of the spine, the shot was taken by SuperCAME On his head is a set of instruments consisting of a high-resolution color camera, two lasers and four spectrophotometers. The rocks immortalized from above have a “prehistoric” appearance due to the light color of those laid out in the central strip, the clear cross-sections of which remind of them single paragraphs from the spine.

As defined on the Who’s Afraid of the Dark? , what is already observed in the photo is one vein. The experts explained that these geological structures are formed “starting from fractures in the rock, usually in the presence of circulating fluids,” adding that the fluids “help not only in opening the fracture, but also in the deposition of materials inside it,” giving life to “a long and narrow structure immersed in a rock.” totally different”. veins (or strings) are also known on Earth and there are different types. Mars was formed in Jezero hole Once occupied by water, it’s no wonder you found it here.

Rosalind Franklin launch to Mars postponed due to war in Ukraine: Unlikely in 2022

The image shared by NASA was taken on June 12, 2022 during Sol 466, or on Mars 466th day of the beginning of the perseverance adventure on the red planet, which began on February 18 last year. Remember that the sun lasts more than a day on Earth, or 24 hours 39 minutes 35.244 seconds. Recently, the probe’s cameras captured images of space debris on the surface of Mars, and the remains of one heat cover Perhaps related to the amazing “abandonment”.
