A Star Trek Logo Spotted on MARS: Says NASA

By Harshit Satyaseel on June 19, 2019

From time to time, we have come through consistent discovery in the field of astronomy. One of such has been found a few days before. In the verge of such exploration, the red planet (MARS) has always fascinated the astronomers. 

USA: NASA, the American space organization has explored a logo that seems more like a dune in the shape of Starfleet and strikes our memory to recall famous logo from Star Trek on Mars, The credit goes to the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) craft.


This image has been clicked by MRO HiRISE camera which is operated by the University of Arizona. 


It is being assumed that spotting of this logo can be complemented to the “face on Mars” phenomenon and thus this could be the fate occurrence usually caused by the movement of lave, wind, and several natural forces that occurs at the landscape of the Red Planet.


“Enterprising viewers will make the discovery that these features look conspicuously like a famous logo… You'd be right, but it's only a coincidence.”
Investigating deep into the matter, it has been found that this dune feature is located in Hellas impact basin which is a vast plain situated in the southern hemisphere of the Red Planet. The picture demonstrates the amalgamation of lava, dunes, and wind formed the chevron shape.  The MRO has photographed the plethora of chevrons on Mars, so we can guess that this is not the first time we have spotted such kind of figure.  
Scientists who are engaged with the HiRISE instrument have spent many years studying the features that are seen in Mars images, and they believe that they have solved the mystery of how this particular shape came into existence. They say the story commences with crescent-shaped sand dunes where wind and surface interacted.
In addition to this, the statement said by the University explains in this way. 
since they are still just dunes, and the winds do keep blowing, the sand piles wither away, leaving behind what looks like ‘footprints’ in the lava plain.
