The European Space Agency has just released incredible images of a huge crater filled with frozen water on Mars. We did not wonder if there were any water on the red planet at all. Now we have photographic evidence that it is a butt, and looks like a sugar sugar on a ginger cake.
The Crater Mars Korolev is located on the plains around the northern half of the planet. It is 82 km wide and 2 km deep and throughout the year contains an aqueous ice layer of 1.8 km thick, which is held in cold shade. The air passing through the ice cools and soaks to form a layer of cold air over its surface, which prevents the ice from melting and the water does not evaporate.
These new images of the forbidden skating rink were shot with a high resolution camera of Mars Express. Launched by ESA in 2003, Mars Ekpress circled around Mars for 15 years, capturing thousands of photos with all the enthusiasm of parents who first worked. The Korol's portrait was created by combining five different images taken from different orbits.
According to Guinness World Records, the record in the skating speed of the 10km long track for men is currently held by Canadian Ted-Jan Bloemen, who slid just 12 minutes 36.60 seconds. Assuming he could keep the same average speed, Bloemen should have about 1 hour and 43 minutes to skate over the Crater Korolev. You could almost see the whole Total Recall in that time.
Although the only water that is confirmed on the surface of Mars is solid and not liquid, the existence of any water continues to instigate fires behind the search for alien life. We can only hope that scientists will eventually discover a good location for the Martian fun in the pool. It would be a big step in the search for aliens, but it would be of great help if we ever get to Mars.
