A Cave on Mars
A group of students secondary school class I-discover a mysterious cave on Mars. At that time, they were working on a research project to study the images taken by NASA spacecraft orbiting the red planet. The finding that the alleged sighting of a hole in the roof of the cave.
The children is a group of science-grade students from Dennis Mitchell, Seventh-grade teacher at Evergreen Middle School in Cotton Wood, California. The students were participating in the activities of the center of Mars Student Imaging Program at the Mars Space Flight Facility at Arizona State University.
Pupils were asked to make such a research proposal, and then allowed to use cameras orbiting Mars to take pictures of their research to answer questions.
Holes similar to the new findings had been found previously in other parts of Mars in 2007 by Glenn Cushing, an American geologist. Cushing argued, captured the image that resembles a “pit stop”, where most of the roof of the cave or hole collapse of lava flow.
Liang was allegedly caused by volcanic activity in the red planet. At one time, lava flows out from the surface of the rock and left its mark in the form of burrows after the eruption ended.
End of the hole was covered by the material cools and some “pipe” the former lava flows that could have collapsed.
So far, scientists have not been able to ensure the types of materials stored inside the cave. “This new hole for our scientists,” Cushing said to the disciples. He estimated the size of the hole was 190 meters x 160 meters and 115 meters deep.
“They develop a research project with a focus on finding the location of” pipe “lava most prevalent on Mars. Is the phenomenon most often occurs at the top, side, or the plains around the mountain,” said Mitchell their teacher.
They then observed a primary and backup photos from Pavonis Monsvolcano (mountain) on Mars. Pictures were taken by the Thermal Emission image tentacle Imaging System (Themis) from the Odyssey, NASA’s orbiting. Reserves which they examined photographs instead gave a surprise: a dark circular image. The image is a hole on Mars, which leads to the cave was buried on that planet.
The findings will be clarified again using the camera High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The device can display more detail in order to look into the hole.
