‘A Bear On Mars?’ NASA Spots Trippy Phenomenon On Planet’s Floor

Scientists trying on the floor of Mars have noticed what appears like a bear staring again at them.

A digital camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took a photograph of the formation on Dec. 12. It was shared Wednesday by the College of Arizona, which operates the digital camera.

A hill with a V-shaped collapse construction types the bear’s nostril and a round fracture sample creates the top, the college’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory defined within the weblog for its Excessive Decision Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) digital camera.

“The round fracture sample could be as a result of settling of a deposit over a buried affect crater. Perhaps the nostril is a volcanic or mud vent and the deposit may very well be lava or mud flows?” it stated.
