Why was the soil on Mars dyed blue? This says NASA
Mars It is historically known as the red planet, but there is a phenomenon that occurs in Martian territory that makes its surface can be dyed blueexplained by NASA.
Recently, the US space agency shared an altered image of the second smallest planet in the Solar System, in a bright teal lathe.
The publication of the image was made to explain a particular climatic phenomenon near the Gamboa crater on Mars, which consists of a variation of the wind at the top of the dunes.
Larger formations that are more intense in color and that are more or less parallel are called transverse wind ridgescovered with very coarse sand.
They cover an area as large as Texas
NASA details the dunes as dark and wind-sculpted into long lines, covering an area as large as the state of texas.
Covering an area 19 miles (30 kilometers) wide, the impressive composition by Yvette Smith can display different shades Y are intended to help understandr which way the wind blew when these mountain ranges were created.
Areas with cooler temperatures are recorded in more blue tones, while warmer features are depicted in yellows and oranges. Therefore, the dark, sun-warmed dunes shine with a golden color.
Smith also made another montage of Mars with an image from NASA’s Perseverance rover showing a hill in Jezero Crater, full of rocks that seem to turn blueanother example of how the red planet can display another color on its surface.
Being able to study these variations allows scientists to investigate the geological past of the Martian surface, another key to man’s long-awaited trip to Mars.
