An encouraging stunning new image of a massive cold crater of Mars Express spacecraft has captured the imagination of the Internet. Although there is still no open ice rink for trade on Mars, the inhabitants of the Earth to the future, it seems a perfect place picturesque skate. And they did it with unbridled enthusiasm for the idea of Twitter. ESA has shown the photo Thursday and overnight, the astronomical phenomena of the new swinging hot spot for the winter were in 2018. A nice #winter Wonderland … of #mars! This crater filled with ice was taken from our spacecraft Mars Express. Korolev crater 82 kilometers and found the northern plains of Mars. The crater image of Mars was recorded by a high-resolution stereo camera, which was used to document the environment. Called the crater Korolev – so named after the engineer Sergei Korolev Rocket – look like snow, but it is actually filled with ice. 50.1 miles wide and 1.2 miles deep, south of the northern polar cap region in the northern plains of Mars crater at 2,200 cubic kilometers of water it is full. In fact, it is frozen permanently. Everything is reduced to the cold trap phenomenon downwards. ESA explains: “The deepest parts Korolev crater those with ice, act as a natural trap: the air, the ice deposition pass cools down and sink to create a cold air layer, which is located directly on the ice itself. Act as a shield, this layer helps the ice remain stable and prevents it from heating and disappears. the air is a poor conductor of heat it is to keep this effect aggravation and Korolev crater permanently frozen. “it might be things in the way of this dream remote, but that does not stop people who think about this with a potential of a crater. People really have their eyes on this new skating weekend fantasy in space. Even in the long summer of six months on Mars, it’s still cold. People are busy planning their movements.
