News! New images come from space! And they are not from Earth, even if they look very similar to the Earth's surface, they come from another planet! It is about an image seen from space, for the planet Mars! This image was taken by CaSSIS on the ESA-Roscosmos ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) on April 21, 2021. It's just that ESA has just published it.

What you see in the image is a kind of crater and the bottom of the crater is captured, a kind of "floor" of it. The image you see has been enlarged by ESA to make it look better. The crater we are talking about has approx. 50-51 km wide. Sediments can be seen on this "floor" of the crater, these being sediments eroded over time, most likely by wind. Also on that "floor" of the crater, ESA claimed that there was very dark sand.

And a very valuable information is the fact that ESA also revealed where the photo was taken. It was made at 3.9897 ° N, 1.3794 ° E (on Mars). We thank TGO, which belongs to ESA, for the spectacular images offered and for everything it has been offering us since 2018, since it started its mission.

It is a spaceship that offers extremely many images and the ship with the richest inventory of various things. As ESA said of it: "The spacecraft not only returns spectacular images, but also provides the best ever atmospheric gas inventory on the planet and maps the planet's surface to water-rich locations."

We wish success to the spaceship, ESA, and all the robots that are on Mars or that study the planet Mars and we hope that everyone will continue to offer us images and news, as well as spectacular information!

If there is other news about Mars or other news from space, we will let you know, but don't forget to subscribe to be announced here:
