NASA recently shared an amazing picture of an avalanche on Mars, and it looks like a massive watercolor on the red planet.
The image, thrown by the HiRISE camera on Mars's Mars spacecraft, shows a Martian space known as Cerberus Fossa, a steep system of troughs that interpret volcanic plains, NASA's press release said. Active debris (also known as "mass waste"), and Cerberus Posea is considered the youngest fracture system on the Red Planet.

Previously we did not have a HiRISE coverage of a particular point. The beauty and beauty of the features in this picture is spectacular.

According to NASA, there are two types of activity that occur in the Cerberus Fossae.First, light blue rocks on the slope appear to originate from a layer of rock (also a light blue tint) at the top of the area. Also due to mass waste, but made from more delicate materials.
Mars. Avalanches. The dark lines in this image are caused by landslides that occur on a steep set of cutting troughs on volcanic Mars plains. Dive deeper into it @HiRISE Picture of the region Karsus Fossae: https://t.co/H36KzJ0fo3 pic.twitter.com/mEAHvL1HPf

Earlier this week, NASA's InSight landing photographed the first "smash" recorded on the red planet with a faint signal identified by the seismic seismic device (SEIS) that may come from the planet, as opposed to wind-induced movements Or other weather conditions on the surface.
Stop what you do. I am about to destroy the image and style that you are used to: @NASAInSight Recognized what is expected to smash.

"We've been waiting months for such a signal," said Philippe Lognonné, leader of the SEIS team at Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP), he said. "It's so exciting to finally have proof that Mars is still active seismic."
InSight's landing seismometer, placed on Mars in December, will allow for similar data collection on the Red Planet.
