Roscosmos released photos of the crater on the surface of Mars.
Photo taken on October 19, 2020 by the Color and Stereo Imaging System (CaSSIS) installed on the Trace Gas Orbiting Explorer (TGO) of the Russian-European cooperation project “Mars-2016” (ExoMars-2016), documenting a The southeast wall of the small crater.
The diameter of the mountain pass is about 12 kilometers, and the area shown in the image is about 500 square kilometers.
Imaging shows light sediments indicating rock foundation outcrops, which may contain ancient clay minerals formed under the action of water.
In addition, wind blowing sand sediments are clearly visible, forming “ripples” at the bottom of the mountain pass.
The distinctive reddish-brown hue indicates the presence of iron oxide.
