In this shot of Mars Express performed on January 27 but published only today, we can observe two almost parallel fractures about 1000 km long.
The area portrayed is Cerberus Fossae in the region of Elysium Planitia, about 10° north of the equator and between 2 and 5 km below the average altitude of the planet.
The estimated age of these fractures is “only” 10 million years, but maybe even less, really “very little” in geological terms!
Those who think that Mars is a dead planet should seriously revise their point of view, since in this article we speak specifically of tectonic activity in times “geologically” very recent.
Don’t miss the other details of this very interesting article….
