The mud flowing on Mars is like boiling toothpaste
During the mud experiments in the laboratory, scientists made amazing discoveries.
A team of global scientists is trying to figure out how to release mud instead of volcanic rocks on the red planet.
In a laboratory in the UK, it created an atmosphere similar to Mars. When tested on the mud, it began to move like boiled toothpaste, and in some cases, the liquid began to leak.
The mud is similar to the lava of the famous Kluyaya Volcano in Hawaii, USA.
This new discovery by scientists will complicate previous research results on Mars
Dr. Peter Bruce of the Institute of Geophysics of the Czech Academy of Sciences said that now when you observe certain objects from space, you will not be able to tell whether it is volcanic lava magma or mud flow.
“Unless geologists are actually on Mars and found with a hammer, it’s hard to tell.”
Dr. Bruce has always been skeptical of the mud flowing on Mars. Over the years, he has tried to refute the definition of the conical shape visible on Mars.
Eventually, Dr. Bruce accepted the definition of the conical shape visible on Mars and began to wonder what would happen if the mud boiled from the surface.
For the same problem, Dr. Bruce got in touch with the team of Dr. Manish Patel of the Open University in the UK. The university’s laboratory facilities can create an environment similar to Mars.
The Open University ’s laboratory is testing equipment designed to be installed on the Mars probe of the Space Agency.
Researchers always do their best to keep the laboratory chamber clean, but during this mud experiment, the sludge began to flow down the sandy slope.
The mud’s reaction on Earth is similar to the gravy reaction on the board, but the mud’s behavior on Mars is very different, and it begins to flow like volcanic material.
This is because the atmospheric pressure on the earth accounts for only one percent of the value of the earth. It converts water into steam and blows it away, and then freezes after boiling.
The outer layer of the fluid freezes, but the fluid remains inside in its form.
Dr. Patel said that the outer surface froze, but the inner fluid flowed out from any weak parts and started to flow. Dr. Patel said it was like a wavy flow from top to bottom, the only difference was that it had molten mud instead of molten rock.
The team of scientists described the results of their initial experiments in the scientific journal Natural Earth Science. However, subsequent experiments have not been reported in Natural Earth Science.
In these experiments, under low pressure, the mud began to boil very quickly and bounced on the surface as if it were floating in the air.
Dr. Bruce said that scientists need to understand that when they study physical factors on planets, they sometimes get unexpected results.
