Ismenia Patera Arabia Terra has been the subject of several studies in recent decades and Spanish researchers have conducted extensive analyses of its geological history at the end of the years 90.
Thanks to these eminent scientists, we have learned that the craters closest to the equator were more recent than those located in its north or south part.
But it’s not the most interesting. A few years later, Mars Odyssey flew over the area and the probe instruments detected the presence of several hydrogen pockets.
By comparing the thresholds to those in other regions, the probe researchers realized that Arabia Terra contained more hydrogen than the entire Martian surface.
Ismênia Patera is located in the middle of this region and has been intrigued by astronomers and geologists for several years now.
The depression reaches a diameter of about 75 kilometers and is located in a pass in the northern hemisphere of the red Planet. According to the various analyses carried out by the space agencies, this strange geological structure was born of a catastrophic event of great magnitude… but its exact origin remains unknown.
Ismênia Patera is a Martian supervolcano or Alien evidence ?
In fact, according to the article published by ESA last week, two elements could explain the formation of this structure: a meteorite impact or a supervolcano.
The European Space Agency took advantage of the passage of the Mars Express Orbiter in the region to take new photos and thus obtain a topographical view of the region.
The latter revealed that the structure consisted of hollows, ravines and small-sized woodpeckers. If the appearance of these elements can be perfectly caused by the impact of a meteorite, they could also be born following a gigantic volcanic eruption.
In this case, the cracks could have been left by the collapse of the volcano.
However, for the time being, no researcher has been able to prove any of these thesis. This will require a rover to be sent to the site and sampling to determine the true nature of Ismênia Patera.
Left a 75 km deep hole in Mars, scientists are puzzled to explain it, according to Daily Mail, the depth of the crater is measured at 40 × 30. kilometers, and the gap descends down to 1750 meters below the plains around the planet, and no one knows how this part of Mars exploded, but the scholars They have some theories, to explain it.
One explanation suggests that the hole known as “Ismenia Patera” was the result of a meteor that fell on the surface of the planet, and there is another explanation claiming that the place of this hole is the location of a large volcano collapsed self, while the new images of the region by the European Space Agency revealed the crater in unprecedented detail, Wei Could eventually help to uncover the causes that led to their form.
It has been discovered in many locations in the North Martian heightsIsmênia Patera over the past few years, features resembling a huge gap that can be evidence of catastrophic events, which took place on the surface of the space planet, and one theory reported that the crater was caused by the meteor that hit On Mars, the scholars believe that another explanation for the emergence of the gap is that it was formed by massive volcanic eruptions that spread ash and lava around the surface of the planet more than three billion years ago.
