The European space module took a picture of

Unfortunately, David Bowie was wrong about the spiders on Mars, while looking at these amazing new images of a huge blue tarantula on the surface of the red planet, one would think otherwise. This picture in false colors shows a series of traces of Martian dust devils. The photo, among many others, have made European ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter. Some of the photos released today, so you can enjoy the gorgeous Martian landscapes with the height sputnikogo flight.

The ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) arrived at Mars in October 2016, but in February 2018 he was in a low orbit above Mars. Scientific work began a couple of months later. The project is managed jointly by the European space Agency (ESA) and its main task is to search for trace gases such as methane, which will help scientists better understand the red planet's ability to support life. Or such ability in the past.

What is the difference TGO is a stunning camera Surface Imaging System (CaSSIS), which he uses to study the surface of Mars from orbit. CaSSIS is unique in that it can produce crystal clear images in 3D high resolution in addition to regular 2D images.

Yes, actually, see for yourself.

The Image in false color of the Martian region of Terra Sabaea shows similar to spider a set of surface features. In fact, it's the tracks left by dust devils, a fairly common weather phenomenon on Mars. This pattern was observed on the crest of a ridge and, according to ESA, is "in fact, the convergence of hundreds or even thousands of a Martian tornado". The picture was presented in the combined color to reveal surface features. His real color, according to ESA, should be dark red because dust devils to get fresh material from below the surface.
