The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on Monday released a stunning image of the Mars crater, which has completely stunned people. The space agency wrote in the caption to the Instagram photo, “Mars crater marks the place.”
NASA captured the image using the High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. In a post on social media, it told its followers that they observed 0 ° longitude on Mars, which is similar to the Greenwich Observatory on the red planet.
NASA wrote in the caption, “Map presented here on a scale of 50 centimeters (19.7 inches) per pixel.” Take a look at the image below:
Since it was shared, the post has received over 449,000 likes. Many Instagram users expressed their fears in the comments section. One user wrote: ‘Looks like a foreign footprint on Mars. Another wrote: “The whole creation of God includes beauty, and the universe is no exception,” wrote a third user, “Something spectacular that leaves you speechless !!!”
In a mesmerizing image of Mars, NASA revealed in the caption that a large crater is sitting in another rock basin, which has been named “Airie Crater”. This explained that Airy Crater originally defined zero longitude for the red planet, but as scientists began capturing more detailed images of the planet’s surface, more accurate markers were needed. Therefore, the space agency designated the smaller crater – called Airy-0 (zero) – because it is the prime meridian to replace existing maps.
