Asteroid leaves a huge patch on the surface of Mars – Space – Science



The circumference of the crater left by the asteroid is about one kilometer; it was created when a cosmic stone fell through Mars between July and September, piercing the planet's southern ice surface. As a result, there is a profound spot that stands out well on the white background in its reddish color, writes "Live Science".

Scientists have found only about 120 crash screens on our planet, and on Mars there are more than 43,000 diameters over 5 kilometers in diameter.

True, many of them are very ancient and do not tend to disappear as craters on our planet, because there are no geological phenomena like tectonic plates on Mars.
