Hitekno.com – Today Mars is known as a dry and dusty planet. However, billions of years ago, Mars was thought to be a huge ocean and had a mega tsunami as a result of a meteor shower.
New Mars theory is full of oceans and meteorites come from a study published on Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets,
Scientists and teams are coming Center for French National Research put forward a new theory that may surprise many people.
Led by Planetary Geomorphologists, Dr. François Costard, the research team, is exploring an ancient Mars crater called the Lomonosov Crater.
It is believed that a crater about 75 miles wide or 120 kilometers wide is the starting point for a meteor collision that caused most of the surface of Mars to be affected by a mega tsunami.
The reputation of the Lomonosov Crater on Mars corresponds to the reputation of the Chicxulub Crater on the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico (Earth).
The Chicxulub crater, whose diameter is 180 kilometers, is believed to be a scientist at the scene of a meteor collision that eventually destroyed all the dinosaurs.
Research on Mars mega-tsunami scientists began with geological studies of several rovers (robotic vehicles) in the ancient north polar delta of the Mars River.
Scientists have discovered that 3.7 billion years ago there was geological evidence to say that the area contains a huge ocean.
Quoted by futurismThe researchers also came up with a new theory that said that 3 billion years ago, a mega tsunami as high as a skyscraper had sunk Mars.
The meteor that struck the area, which is now Lomonosov Crater, is considered the starting point for the super-big catastrophe that struck Mars.
Lomonosov's short circle has the same height as the depth of the sea.
The crater is also physically nearly identical and even resembles a sea crater on Earth.
Research into this mega tsunami has led scientists to believe that secret sediments from Mars' past life could be found in the North Pole of the Red Planet.
