European Space Agency (ESA) spacecraft photographed an unnamed crater on Mars that looks like a human eye.
We also wrote that scientists were taken aback by a huge solar flare. The European Mars Express orbiter photographed this eyeball-shaped crater in the colorful landscape of Aonia Terra, a high plateau in the southern highlands of Mars.
It turned out that the crater “looks” at the European Mars Express orbiter in this newly posted image. Inside the crater is a dark field of dunes against a background of a lighter surrounding surface.
The colors and contours of the crater captured by the Mars Express High Definition Stereo Camera (HRSC) reveal the many different materials and textured “history” of the crater. Cone-shaped hills and other irregularities on the surface of the inner crater are signs that the space inside the “eye” was previously filled with a variety of materials.
It is possible that the convolutions in the photo are dried up water channels, and these channels probably carried liquid water on the surface of Mars about 3.5-4 billion years ago, the ESA said.
We also wrote why developed civilizations are in no hurry to Earth – it suddenly dawned on scientists.
