NASA has released an extremely impressive video in 4K resolution from the Red Planet Mars. It’s not like anything we’ve seen before.
NASA, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration, shared a new video from the surface of Mars in 4K resolution. The video was compiled from multiple images taken by the powerful HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
The video showcases the corrugated terrain inside the ancient crater, which is more than 270 kilometers wide. It features dried-up creeks, steep rocky slopes, and unseen features of the Red Planet’s landscape, and the imaged area is called Aram Chaos.
Blue hue of mars
In the published video, the absence of the usual red tones of Mars and the dominance of blue are immediately striking. This is explained by the presence of large amounts of basalt, an igneous rock formed on the planet during periods of volcanic activity.
The HiRISE camera is extremely powerful and can detect even very small objects. This made the video very detailed.
