NASA shows images of crater on Mars

in #busy2 years ago

The crater called 'Roddy' houses several alluvial fans, which would have formed when the water moved the sediments of the mountainous edge and deposited it on the floor


NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) captured images of the Roddy Crater on Mars , an area that hosts several alluvial fans.

This type of geological features on the "red planet", which can be found on Earth and Saturn's moon, Titan, formed when the water moved the sediments of the crater's mountainous edge and deposited them on the crater floor .

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) explained that alluvial fans accumulated over time during intense rainstorms or snowmelt .

However, due to the strong winds of Mars, the channels of the rivers that once carried water and sediments on the surfaces of the fans, are now found as crests and raised platforms .

The snapshot, taken on September 16, 2013, shows in the upper right, a thin ejection layer of a small crater on the eastern edge of Roddy that protected the underlying surfaces of the fans from modification by the wind.

Nice post @wayneb but I think you should get a profile pic. It may seem like a small detail but you’ll be more recognizable in someone’s feed.
