NASA executives who have studied a few latest images transmitted by the van sized rover have found that the images showed cloud on Mars.
This is the first time that such a picture has been noticed and astronomers, obviously happy by the sight, have gone to the town claiming that the picture showed clouds. And clouds are not formed without the occurrence of water, super cooled water droplets or some other resource of water not just on earth but every place in the universe.
Accidentally, the Curiosity rover is watching clouds, faces criticisms of lack of scientific focus. In the month of September, Curiosity informed that it is going to Pahrump Hills as it will carry on traveling towards Mount Sharp to perform geology work and seek for clouds. The latest pictures that the car-sized rover sent showed traveling cloud creations that are blown by high altitude winds.
On the basis of this breakthrough news now the Curiosity rover is focusing more on the surface of the Red Planet drilling rocks and collects samples of soils, but the six-wheeled spacecraft looking skyward to observe the Martian clouds because it has its own scientific importance.
By researching the weather and clouds on the Red Planet, scientists could collect information on the procedures that have changed the weather on Mars through time. Clouds are also imperatively related to weather patterns and wind.
Robert Haberle, who is the leading member of the (REMS) team, elaborated the value and significance of studying the Martian clouds. He said that clouds are a component of the climate system of a planet and their behavior could give knowledge about winds and temperatures.
“Several studies propose that clouds in the past may have extensive warmed the planet through a greenhouse outcome,” Haberle said. “A warmer atmosphere is more favorable to life.”
A research on the Martian weather could also assist to explain the theory that how natural procedures have shaped the hills, rocks and outcrops in Mars since the winds mostly contribute its role in determining the surface of the planet in the last three to four billion years.
