NASA Rover Curiosity has been exploring our neighbor Mars since 2012. More precisely, research needs to be done Curiosity Greater GaleIt lies quietly between the northern flat plateaus of the Red Planet and the southern hemisphere crater. The Gale crater is a crater about 154 km in diameter that probably formed 3.5 billion years ago. Aeolis Mons, a mountain about five kilometers high, rises in the middle.
NASA scientists have carefully selected the landing site for Curiosity: satellite images suggest the Gale crater was once filled with water. The dry lake on Mars was promising: maybe you could go there Traces of life that once existed Swelling. Liquid water is considered essential in its detection. But now a research team has been published “Scientific Advancement” published a studyIt says: The Gale crater was never filled by a large, deep lake – but by a shallow pool at most.
Instead of water, the wind is said to have formed sediments in the Gale crater on Mars
The results of the panel, led by Jiacheng Liu of the University of Hong Kong, can be interpreted differently from most of the discoveries and investigations made since the Mars rover Curiosity landed. In 2012, Curiosity landed in the northeastern part of the Gale Crater, and has been exploring the pages of the Aeolis Mons since 2014. The rover analyzes sediment and deposits. Soil rock layers in particular have been estimated by other researchers as remnants of a lake that once existed because they represent the relationship between rock and water. Over time, the sediment will accumulate in the muddy lake.
