Our recent advancements in technology have allowed us to capture images of our solar system that we would have never thought to be possible. These images provide us with a more in-depth view of how our universe works to help us expand our knowledge of such things. Recently, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter or (MRO) captured images of Mars that captivate their audiences and provide a new outlook on the red planet. The photo was taken in the northwest region of the planet referred to as the Nili Fossae, known to be one of the most beautifully colorful places on Mars.
The image shows different minerals on the surface of Mars, such as carbonate, and iron oxide, which give the crust color. NASA scientists believe that this location could have perhaps contained life millions of years ago and will be explored in depth shortly. In the past, Mars wasn’t the red color it is today, and was in fact, quite similar to Earth. Beyond the crimson crust of the planet lies many more colors made up of mineral deposits and clay.
A part of the Nili Fossae territory contains a massive fissure known as the Nili Fossae Trough. It contains, researchers say, a massive deposit of clay minerals which contain water and preserve organic materials. This documentation could, in fact, lead to a discovery of life on the planet when scientists previously suspected there to be none on the rust colored, supposedly barren wasteland planet. Recent studies, however have changed many Mars researchers’ and NASA scientist’s minds on the possibility that life could be found on the planet in the future. These images are helping further their conceptions on the possibility that Mars could, in fact, could have contained life in the past-or still, contains it to this day. The organic material could be found in this clay in future studies of the Nili Fossae Region, and this would be tremendous in our ever-growing studies of Mars.
We only have to look to the future for answers that we thought may never be possible.
