NASA experts have recorded on Mars is quite unusual tracks – the dotted line, a length of about 500 meters and is similar to the “~” character.According to the space agency, it left no aliens, and rolled down the slope stone.
The line was fixed high resolution camera HiRISE, installed on the interplanetary station Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, on July 3, but at NASA about it reported a few days ago.
Product height is about six meters (20 feet), width – about 3.5 meters (11.5 feet), estimated by the agency, noting that it is because of this irregularly shaped boulder left like a “~” character trail rather than a straight line.
The incident recalls that on Mars, the same natural forces that on Earth, saysCNet . Gravity on Mars, we recall, 62% lower than on Earth. That is, for example, 100-pound Earthling on Mars would weigh 38 kilograms.
How weighed rolled down the slope stone specialists Space Agency did not specify. What made him budge at NASA also reported. It should be noted that the resultant broken line indicates that the boulder were convexity.
Previously, such cases are on the Red Planet has already occurred. Thus, in June 2013 Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured a similar but more direct trail left, probably a stone. Then, some experts have suggested that in fact it is not moving the boulder, and some Martian transport system. However, conclusive evidence of this theory has not yet been found.
