A recently released image from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) shows the incredible immersion of an asteroid effect on Mars surface.
Using its High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE), the MRO photographed the new crater on April 17, 2019, while bringing a height of 255 kilometers, according to a HiRise statement.
crater is about 15 to 16 meters wide. The dark splotch created by the effect is about 500 meters wide (1,640 feet), and the magnitude of meteorology is estimated at approx. 1
Here on Earth, we are well aware of the significance of potential asteroid strikes, but fortunately this clump of space rock would more than likely not survive the journey through Earth's atmosphere, as it is considerably thicker than that of Mars. 19659002] Dr. Bruce Betts, Chief Scientist at the Planetary Society, puts it in perspective for Reverse :
"When this size object hits the Earth's atmosphere, it breaks up, and at least most of it burns up before hitting the earth, Mars has a much thinner atmosphere, so these medium objects make it impact on the surface.
"Although this size of asteroid would not make it through the Earth's atmosphere, effects such as these At, we are a reminder that we need to work to defend the earth against the impact of the larger asteroids out there. "
When an asteroid hits the surface of Mars, it throws the material out beneath the surface. Because much of Mars is covered in bright red dust and rusted stones, the material being thrown out is often darker, so that the surface material that we looks at this image.
The enhanced color highlights bluer material and it can represent material of different composition than the surface stone.
