Wired Science Space Photo of the Day | Wired Science |

A CTX image shows topographic cones in local depressions on Mars. What are these and how did they form?

This image reveals “rootless cones,” which form on lava flows that interact with subsurface water. They are in depressions because subsequent lava flowed around the base of the cones, then “inflated.” Lava inflation is a process where liquid is injected beneath the solid (thickening) crust and raises the whole surface, often raising it higher than the topography that controlled the initial lava emplacement.

This scene is in Amazonis Planitia, a vast region covered by flood lava. The surface is coated by a thin layer of reddish dust, which avalanches down steep slopes to make dark streaks.

  2. I don’t know, they don’t either, but you know, it kind of looks like missile silo’s as they are seen from the air.

    • Yeah, it does look like that. Did they say where these photos were? I mean, from space on earth, or some other planet?

        • Huh. Maybe the Iranians figured out how to make it to Mars and put Missile silos on it! LOL Somehow, I doubt that. Thanks for writing me back. God bless you!

        • One more thought. If you read about the Nephilim (Randy DeMain, The Nephilim Agenda, The Nephilim Resurgence) you would understand when I say it would NOT surprise me one bit if demonic beings had access to other planets where they did things. For example, many people who believe in UFO’s and space aliens do not realize that they are demonic manifestations. Ephesians 6 tells us about principalities and powers of darkness in the heavens (high places).

          • Understand Lyn, Perry Stone had a pretty good video about it as well. My Pastor has brought it up a few times as well!

            • That’s cool. Yes, I think I saw Perry’s video on it as well… although I’m not sure. If you come across the link (you don’t need to go looking for it for me..I know that can be time consuming) send it my way, please. God bless you! Just got done with makeup..not I am out the door! Hugs and love to you today!
