- Classic face on Mars
People love space stories. Therefore, so many mysterious theories have been formed about unusual objects seen on the surface of the Red Planet. Our fantasy manages to turn rocks and rocks into faces and alien machines. A recent snapshot from the Curiosity Mars rover sparked serious discussions in networks. What is it? Strange animal? Space Crab Monster? Most likely no. This is just a rock formation.
Join us to explore the most famous Martian riddles in detail. In 1976, the Viking-1 apparatus was fixed in the Martian orbit and received this popular image. The public was excited about what looked like a human face. You yourself can see here two eyes, a nose, a mouth and even a fancy hairstyle. Some believed that we had the young look of Elvis Presley! There is nothing surprising that for many years people kept saying that they see a monument on Mars. First published August 4, 2015.
- A new look at the face of Mars
NASA did not intend to leave the Martian face without explanation. In 2001, Mars Global Surveyor research station received a new snapshot of features. Now it was a clearer high-resolution frame. It shows a bright and less sharp image. In general, this is just a table mountain, and not a face or a monument of alien culture.
- The femur on Mars
Surely, you already had time to wonder at this strange bone. NASA's Curiosity Rover sent this image to Earth in 2014, showing a strange rock resembling the bone of a human thigh. Scientists were quick to explain that the unusual shape was due to erosion by wind or water. If NASA ever found the remains of a man or an alien on Mars, then scientists would not hesitate to scream about it from the rooftops.
- Fancy patterns
In March 2018, NASA published a snapshot of the MRO orbiter with the dramatic signature “The Case of Martian Boulder Patterns”. Take a closer look at the dark sand dunes and free sites. They resemble clear boulder patterns. Researchers believe that neat pictures are created because of “freezing” with freezing and thawing cycles. These processes push the stones to orderly forms. A similar process is observed in terrestrial conditions.
- Donald Trump's Head in the Rock
President Donald Trump may not be particularly popular with some Americans, but his appearance was noticed in a photograph of the Martian surface in 2009. Here is a wonderful example of the phenomenon of paradolia. This is a feature of the human brain that allows you to find in the form of clouds dragons and rabbits. Although the rock really resembles the profile of the president.
- Morse code?
This view from the MRO orbiter arrived in February 2016. One can notice strange formations on the surface of the Red Planet. Dark raised areas - a series of dunes resembling dots and dashes of Morse code. Unfortunately, when translating we get gibberish from a set of awkward letters.
- Martian tadpole
Many netizens have confirmed that this image from the MRO looks a lot like a tadpole, a yo-yo (a toy) or a sperm cell. In reality, you see a round crater in which the tail is carved by the movement of water. We can say that the water flowed out, as scientists have information about the height of the terrain. Mars has a water past, but life forms have not yet been discovered.
- Go Fish
There is a real fish rock on Mars, though there’s no real fish there. Rover Curiosity recorded this unusual image on the camera and many immediately sounded the UFO in the forge. However, this species was created by the shape of the rock and the lighting features. NASA also added that the Red Planet never had enough oxygen in the atmosphere to support the survival of complex organisms. Therefore, you can hardly find ancient large fossils here.
- Details of the dusty devil
An unusual jet plane was seen in the picturesque landscape of 2016 from Opportunity. In fact, it is a dusty “devil” that occurs on Earth. These eddies are the clearest description of Martian nature. Future colonists will have to get used to working in difficult conditions.
- Martian Plants
In the picture from the 2010 MRO, it seems as if a cloud of particles is rising above a round rock. No, no one had time to start the work of factories. Most likely, this is a consequence of the avalanche and the fall of carbon dioxide. NASA believes that such events occur in the spring, which corresponds to April-May on Earth.
