Could the Surface of Phobos Reveal Secrets of the Martian Past? He couldn’t hold the air of his breath because there was no strong tension, Mars couldn’t. What was in his atmosphere is additionally disappearing. and therefore the particles that begin of that atmosphere are getting to hit one among the 2 moons of Mars ‘Phobos’.
The incident was captured on a very powerful camera from NASA‘s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (Maven) spacecraft orbiting Mars. Maven sent all those pictures. And the researchers got this information by analyzing all that. The study was published in the international science journal Nature Geoscience. Last February 1.
According to the researchers, at every moment, a huge number of particles are falling out of the red planet and running towards one of its moons, Phobos. Phobos is hitting. Those particles are basically ions of oxygen, carbon, nitrogen and argon.
They are also in the atmosphere of our earth. But it is not hitting our moon to this extent. The first reason is that the Earth’s strong magnetic field did not cause the atmosphere to evaporate. That magnetic field on Mars is much weaker. So hundreds of millions of years ago, almost all of the red planet’s atmosphere disappeared. Data and images sent by NASA spacecraft show that the atmosphere (1 percent of the Earth’s atmosphere) that was on Mars is also disappearing. The second reason is that Phoebus, one of the two moons, is about 70 percent of Earth’s distance from Mars.
NASA researchers said that by examining these particles, this time they will try to dig out the past history of the red planet. We will try to find out how thick the atmosphere of Mars was billions of years ago and how long ago it started to disappear.
