Illusion of Water: Researchers have discovered that the Mars satellites are “wrong”

The researchers found that some of the pixels 90% of the images taken by the actor “заблуждался” “/>

represented 90% of the Orbiter Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shot. Mars satellite Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows what is actually there. The error was calculated after finding the best signs of moisture absorbing material on the surface of Mars. They were not just a Mirage: scientists now have serious doubts about the exact distribution of water on the planet.

Tools Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Mars spectrum, mounted on a satellite, is the “eye of the sky” that identifies minerals on the planet’s surface and places of accumulation of water. The procedure is performed by measuring the infrared waves and visible light corresponding to different chemical structures, and then distributing data to pixels representing a range of 1

00 to 200 meters in diameter.

Pixels displaying minerals like alunite, keseric, serpentine and perchlorate, probably produced filters that correspond to different peaks in data will inevitably occur when the sensors are set between areas of intense light and shadow. A team of researchers aimed at investigating possible distribution of perchlorate salts required this fine-tuning of the filtering process using the new algorithm. In the end, they found that about 0.05% of the pixels emit the peaks so that they look like perchlorate.

 Fortunately, when it comes to most of the mineral problem, it's a little lubricated image. After inspecting the same areas with the help of other tools, the researchers saw that the minerals are mostly in their places. But as regards the perchlorate - only a small part was correct. This can be a serious problem. </p> <p> Mars atmosphere is too cold and thin against water on the surface existed in liquid form. However, as a mixture of the perchlorate salts of its melting point, it may be sufficiently low that a small amount of liquid remains. Anyway, in theory. </p><div><script async src=

When you detect the problem in CRISM, you will determine exactly where the Mars surface is perchlorate. Because we’re talking about damages just a few pixels, existing maps are blurry, but not useless. In addition, the data obtained from the CRISM instrument can be adjusted using other tools.
