Mars is under attack.

The Red Planet was hit by an asteroid sometime in the past three years and the resulting crater has been exposed as a “dark material” under Mars’ reddish dust that is currently baffling scientists.

The photo was taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on April 17, 2019 at the latest. The black-and-blue areas on the Martian landscape, the highlights of the area that was affected by it.

A university of Arizona scientist, Veronica, told me Breakfast the crater was at the higher end of the ones she has seen, and it was a very rare event, as the MRO, it is a continuous observation of Mars, for 13 years.

“It’s a reminder of what it is,” she told the news outlet. “It’s a wonderful [crater]. I’m glad I got it in the color of the strip.”

The bluish tinge to be seen in the figure, it can be exposed to ice, even though Bray and her co-researchers are not sure exactly what it is, and further research is needed.

Peter Grindrod, a research leader in Planetary Science at the Natural History Museum in London, which tweeted this gif where the before-and-after photos.

The researchers suspect that the asteroid was no more than 5 metres in width and would probably have broken had it, it came into the atmosphere of the Earth. However, because of the atmosphere of Mars is much weaker than the Earth’s, it would have a better chance of leaving an impact crater.

It is not clear exactly when the impact occurred, but the best guess is that the impact crater that was formed between September and February, 2016, and 2019.

NASA’s exploration of space, and in particular the maritime spatial planning in the spotlight in the past few weeks. A tweet from the President, He caused confusion earlier this month when he said, “NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon,” but it must be focused on a lot of great things that we can do, such as Mars, the Moon, and is a part of it), the ministry of Defence and the academic community.”

Under the direction of the Trumpet, the administration, the astronauts return to the Moon by 2024.

The NASA Administrator, Jim Bridenstine, tried to play down the confusion, noting that the us was using the Moon as a gateway to the Planet.

Last week, the University of Arizona, which operates the HiRISE camera, took a picture of the MRO took over in march on a dune that looks strikingly similar to the Starfleet logo on “Star Trek.”
