Curious surface features, water-formed minerals, 3D stereo views, and even a sighting of the InSight lander showcase the impressive range of imaging capabilities of the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter. The ESA-Roscosmos Trace Gas Orbiter, or TGO, launched three years ago … Continue reading
Possible chloride-rich deposits in Terra Sirenum. Beautiful Mars series.
Putative chloride deposit in the Ladon Valles basin. Beautiful Mars series.
What is that “purplish” colored stuff (in HiRISE IRB color) with the polygonal fractures in this observation? Scientists think it contains chlorides, like sodium chloride or table salt, or maybe chloride of calcium or magnesium. These salts can be deposited … Continue reading
Possible chloride salts in Icaria Planum. Beautiful Mars series.
Mars turned cold and dry long ago, but researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have discovered evidence of an ancient lake that likely represents some of the last potentially habitable surface water ever to exist on the Red Planet. … Continue reading
