ALIEN DOORWAY – MARS CURIOSITY ROVER

ALIEN DOORWAY

NASA’s Curiosity rover has recently sent a picture, in which a door-like – structure is seen in the middle of the rocky mountains on the surface of Mars. Exploration of planet Mars has been one of the primary focuses of Scientists in the 21 century.

NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover used its Mastcam, to capture this mound of rock Nicknamed “East Cliffs” on May 7, 2022, the 3,466th Martian day, of the mission. The mound has many naturally-occurring open fractures.

They were probably deposited by what geologists call the “aeolian process “, which means “wind action”.Over time, they hardened rock. It probably wasn’t anything mysterious. It is a marsquake or other natural process. The blocks of rocks eventually moved apart and what was left behind looks like a door.

MARS CURIOSITY ROVER

The Mars Science Laboratory and its rover centerpiece, Curiosity is the most ambitious Mars mission flown by NASA. The rover landed on Mars in 2012 with a primary mission to find out whether Mars is suitable for life. Another one is to learn about the red planet.
