This is evidenced by a study made on the basis of a picture of a volcano in the area of the Cerberus Fossil on Mars.
In 2012, in the vicinity of the town of Maniitsok in Greenland, European geologists discovered the oldest crater on Earth! Its diameter was 100 kilometers, and, as scientists assumed, it arose as a result of the fall of an asteroid three billion years ago. A new study suggests that in fact this geological formation is not a crater at all.
Over the past ten years, more and more mysterious craters have appeared in the Arctic tundra. The depth of the last one found reaches 50 meters.
The orbiter of Roscosmos and the European Space Agency took several new images of Mars in the spring. Now scientists have decided to share these unique frames that show interesting geological features of the surface of the Red Planet.
This stunning picture of dawn on the Red Planet was taken by the Curiosity rover.
One of the islands of the Kuril Archipelago, Raikoke, suffers from the activity of the volcano of the same name every now and then. This area is uninhabited, and even the outlines of the shores change noticeably with each eruption or collapse of the crater.
Volcanoes can be compared to wild animals in a zoo: they are beautiful, they are pleasant to admire, but if something goes wrong, they will kill you in no time. There are many active volcanoes in the world, and Popular mechanics represents the ten most dangerous of them.
At the bottom of the Arctic Ocean, liquid and solid methane lies under the ice layer. A slight increase in ocean temperature may be enough for the ice to melt and the gas to escape.
Scientists from Johns Hopkins University (USA) have found out that the dark surface of Mercury may represent the remains of an ancient graphite crust.
The main attraction of Kamchatka is still visible before landing to the elizovo airport of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Volcanoes with snow-capped peaks rise on top of low clouds, causing delight to the passengers of our airliner. In good weather, volcanoes are visible from everywhere - and from the airport, practically any place in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
