NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover discovers oldest dormant volcano on Mars

After landing on Mars in February this year, NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover has been telling us about many discoveries. Jezero Crater After nearly 10 months of driving around Jezero Crater, researchers are beginning to understand that the region probably formed from a long-dormant Martian volcano. NASA scientists believe that this discovery will help to better understand the history of the planet. In a report, NASA revealed that the crater rocks have interacted with water several times since their origin. Some organic molecules are also present in these rocks.

The NASA research team thought about the origin of these rocks even before Perseverance landed on Mars. Scientists have been conjecturing that the nature of the rocks was either sedimentary or igneous. Now he has come close to his answer.

The US space agency announced this through a tweet. It was written in this post, the base of Jezero Crater of Mars, NASA Persever has been running in it for about 10 months. It appears to have formed from red-hot magma—possibly from a long-dormant Martian volcano.
