The discovery of a "strange building" on Mars - the researcher "confused"

The discovery of a “strange building” on Mars – the researcher “confused”

During the investigations on Mars, researchers found a “strange structure” – in the middle of a huge crater.

Frankfurt – Explore Mars* Lasts. Scientists are learning more and more about the “red planet,” as it has been named many times. In particular NASA* – The compound “perseverance” has recently attracted a lot of attention. with holes Mars*Rock, Researchers want to know details about past microbial life. A second dig through “perseverance” was successfully carried out recently. The material will now be sent back to Earth so it can be examined there.

But this is not the only mission of NASA in space exploration* Highlights exciting details about Mars. One example of this thesis is the Curiosity rover on Mars, which is now ten years old. The rover recently discovered a “strange structure”, as experts called it.

The discovery on the “Curiosity” mission also centered on rocks on Mars: in Gale Crater, a crater with a total diameter of 154 kilometers, the rover encountered a stone arc. Martian geologist Gwenel Karavaca described the arc as a “strange structure” and emphasized on Twitter that the “fragile structure” could also be interpreted as a DNA strand or a snake.

NASA published a photo of the rock. According to experts, it was recorded by ChemCam aboard NASA’s Curiosity spacecraft.


Abigail Freeman, a planetary geologist at NASA, reported the discovery in one Message “A particularly whimsical picture of an interesting stone texture.” It is “confused by the nature” of the structure. According to Freeman, bumps and lumps of several inches in length are very rare.

It was encountered by Curiosity on Mars while exploring the transition zone between the mud-containing and sulfate-containing regions of Gale Crater. According to NASA, both areas are potential areas where experts are looking for evidence of water.

However, evidence for this is very scarce. Experts view Gale crater as a dusty area in which many substances that may not be sensitive to erosion occur. For example, researchers recently discovered a Martian mineral that has not yet been found on Earth. (Act) * view from IPPEN.MEDIA.
