NASA takes a picture of a “bear face” on Mars

A strange formation resembling a bear’s face was captured on the surface red planet by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter last month.

The eyes form a perfectly positioned crater, stack with a “collapsing V structure” that forms the nose, and a circular head fracture pattern, according to the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, which controls the spacecraft’s camera. .

“The circular fracture pattern could be due to sediment being deposited over a buried impact crater,” the laboratory explained. Perhaps the nose is a volcanic vent or mud and sediment It could be lava slurry flows? “

The University of Arizona released this image of a feature on Mars that resembles the face of a bear.

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which lifted off from Earth in 2005, is just one of several spacecraft NASA is using to explore the red planet.
