InSight probe has made amazing discoveries on Mars

The device NASA runs a very important research inside of the Red Planet for a year. Scientists with the service mission reported that the probe recorded earthquakes in the area in which it is located.This is a very important discovery, because it shows that Mars is still geologically active. InSight probe is located in the Elysium Planitia. This vast plains extending around the planet’s equator. Scientists do not accidentally chose this place. Research conducted by the orbiters have shown that this is where there is the greatest chance of obtaining information on the geology of this object. Now we know that they came to the spot. Registration of seismic activity took place a few days ago by an instrument called SEIS (Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure), which is specially designed and built by French scientists was designed to study Mars earthquakes.Until now, the scientific world believed that on this planet there is no longer seismic activity. It disappeared billions of years ago, and the best result are extinct volcanoes. Here one must emphasize that they are the largest of this type of objects in the solar system. Olympus Mons rises to up to 27 kilometers above the surrounding plain. Scientists at JPL reported that since the setting instrument on the planet, which took place in November 2018, was able to register up to 300 seismic events. Interestingly, most of them were poor, but the main thing that managed to detect the first tectonic fault on this fascinating planet. It is called the Cerberus Fossae and is located approx. 1600 km east of the landing site probe InSight. Cerberus Fossae extends for up to 1,300 kilometers of the planet and is active from the last few million years. For scientists this is an important discovery. You may be able to identify the more active areas and exploit their geothermal potential in order to build and maintain the first colony on Mars. Earthquakes on Mars is undoubtedly a major event in the world of space exploration. Before our eyes is born just learning a new discipline: “seismology Mars.” In the above footage you can hear the sound of a seismic shock illustrating registered 6 April 2019 year, 128 day stay InSight probe on Mars. The sound from both sets of sensors has been accelerated by a factor of 60, because the actual vibrations on the Red Planet would not be audible to the human ear.
