NASA says new images from Mars will guide the search for evidence of ancient life


Images Tuesday A new study reveals how water helped shape the lands of the Red Planets billions of years ago.

In February, NASA’s diligent rover Gizero descended into the abyssScientists suspect that the long-running river feeds a lake, and the sediments in the delta are visible in the form of a fan in space.

They scientifically examined high-resolution images captured by the diligence of rocks that were once the shores of the Delta. The layers within the rocks reveal how their formation occurred.

NASA astronomer Amy Williams and her team in Florida have discovered similarities between the rock features in the valley and the shapes in the Earth’s river delta. According to the study, because 3.7 billion years ago Mars was “hot and humid enough to support a hydraulic cycle”, the shape of the lower three layers showed an initial presence and uniform current.

Rocks with a diameter of one meter are scattered in the upper and posterior layers, possibly due to violent flooding.

But microscopic deposits of the core layer are the target of a model for signs of longevity destruction on Mars.

This will help researchers find out where to send the rover into the soil and rocks that contain valuable “biological signals” of Martian life.

“From the orbit pictures, we know that the delta must be made of water,” Williams said. “But getting these pictures is more like reading a book than looking at the cover.”

The main task of the diligence was to find out if there is a creature on Mars, which took decades and was developed at a cost of billions of dollars.

Over the years, the Multi-Mission Rover will collect 30 rock and soil samples in sealed tubes, which will eventually be occasionally sent to Earth for laboratory analysis.

Last month, travel scientists announced diligence in collecting two rock samples in Jessore, which showed signs of prolonged contact with groundwater. They believe the specimens may have carried on ancient microbial life at some point, as evidence that they may have been trapped by salt minerals.

Knowing that Mars may have had life at one time, Williams said it was one of the most profound discoveries made by mankind.

She wondered if there was a window in an ancient river system on another planet. “It’s so amazing to see something that no one on earth has ever seen,” he said.
