The Surface of Mars Has Fibrous Matter, This Is What NASA Says

Telset.id, Jakarta – Stringy objects are known to be visible on the surface of Mars, as recorded by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The viral image is probably the Dacron net.

The surface of Mars has been NASA’s focus for some time. The United States space agency observed the red planet from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, USA.

Like The telephone quote from New York PostDacron nets present on Mars are commonly used in thermal blankets, according to a NASA blog post.

Unfortunately, before it can be imaged by the Mastcam-Z camera with a higher resolution, Dacron’s net is blown away. However, NASA managed to catch the patterns.

“The hardware team suspected it was another part of the Dacron net based on the 2×2 mm2 grid pattern,” said Justin Maki, Mastcam-Z imaging scientist and deputy investigator.

“They noted that the special net had undergone significant decomposition/destruction due to being exposed to very strong forces,” added Maki.

Additional images of the Entry, Descent, and Landing system debris from a special robot called NASA’s Rover Perseverance in the Hogwallow Flatts region have been shared.

There was also a piece of multi-layer insulation that probably came from skycrane. Location of the fall skycrane located about two kilometers to the southeast.

Furthermore, Maki said that it seems that the soft material has been blown away for several days or weeks on the Red Planet.

“The dot pattern of the material matches the pattern of the thermal blanket installed on the spacecraft. Blankets are made in one of two varieties,” continued Maki.

The variety is Perforated Aluminized Kapton or Mylar. The next image shows that the blanket is stuck in the rock and can be seen flapping in the wind.

By July 24, 2022, NASA’s operations team had cataloged about half a dozen debris from the suspected Entry, Descent, and Landing of Perseverance in the area.

Maki noted, the first debris was seen at Hogwallow Flats, April 16, 2022. The location became a natural collection point for windblown debris.

Members of the Mars Perseverance rover team are examining to see if the material could indeed be a potential source of contamination for the sample tubes.
