NASA discovered a… “bear” on the planet Mars

In an image shared on January 25 by the University of Arizona, the face of a… bear appears to form on the surface of the Red Planet

The scientists who study the surface of the planet Mars came face to face with a strange image.

In an image shared on January 25 by the University of Arizona (UA), the face of a… bear appears to be forming on the surface of the Red Planet as “caught” by the camera of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, called the High Resolution Imaging Experiment or HiRISE.

However, it is not a… Martian bear but according to the University of Arizona the strange photo was created after a variety of geological formations.

Two cracks in the surface of Mars, two craters and a peculiarity of the rocks were enough to form the head of a bear.

According to NASA scientists, the circular fault may have been caused by deposition of a deposit onto a buried impact crater that had been filled with lava or mud. The feature that looks like a bear’s nose is probably a volcanic eruption.

The University of Arizona developed the camera in collaboration with Ball Aerospace.

The HiRISE camera has been taking images of Mars since 2006, when the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter began circling the red planet. The powerful camera was designed to capture detailed images of the Martian surface.
