Red Planet Or Red Velvet Cake Updates: Astronomers have long been perplexed by Mars. The European Space Agency (ESA) just released an image that adds to the mystery surrounding Mars. The Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) acquired an image of Mars that looked like a delectable dessert. The image depicted Earth’s neighbour “like a sprinkle of powdered sugar on a luscious red velvet cake,” according to the ESA.
But whence did the colour white originate? The red colours represent rusty Martian soil, according to ESA. It is made of water-ice. A 4 km wide crater in the Vasteras Borealis region, which is a plain near the planet’s north pole, is depicted in the image. TGO, a joint mission of the European Space Agency and the Russian space agency Roscosmos, obtained the photograph in July of last year.
North-facing hills, which receive fewer hours of sunlight on average throughout the year, are particularly affected.” The dark area around the crater’s rim, which yields” it a burned appearance, is most likely volcanic material like basalt. Under the ExoMars mission, European and Russian space agencies dispatched an orbiter to Mars, which will be followed by a rover later this year. TGO is investigating atmospheric gases and searching for water resources on and near Mars’ surface. In a canyon on Mars, scientists previously discovered “hidden water.”
In 2018, two years after arriving on Mars, the orbiter began investigating the planet. When the second ExoMars mission arrives on Mars in 2023, the spacecraft will serve as a data relay for the expedition. For astronomers, Mars has long been a mystery. The European Space Agency (ESA) just released an image that adds to the mystery surrounding Mars. The photograph, taken by the Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO), depicted Mars as a delectable cake. The photograph makes the Earth’s neighbour look “like a dusting of powdered sugar on a rich red velvet cake,” according to the ESA.
Where does the white come from, though? According to ESA, it is made of water-ice, and the red colours resemble rusty Martian soil. The darker rim of the crater, which gives it a burned appearance, is most likely made up of volcanic rocks like basalt.
