To find Clouds on Mars, you can also be involved in this Project of NASA

Space agencies around the world are running their missions there to find the possibility of life on Mars. The American space agency NASA and China’s space agency are at the forefront. NASA scientists are working to solve a mystery related to the atmosphere of Mars. The best part is that you too can help them. For this, NASA has organized a project on its citizen science platform Juniverse. In this project named ‘Cloudspotting on Mars’, people get a chance to identify clouds on Mars.

NASA believes that it is easy for people to recognize them with their eyes. It is believed that there were lakes and rivers on Mars billions of years ago. It is believed that at that time the atmosphere of Mars was thick. Scientists want to understand how the planet lost its atmosphere over time.

“We want to learn what triggers the formation of clouds,” said Marek Slipsky, a postdoctoral researcher at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The project’s success could help researchers understand why the Martian atmosphere is only 1 percent denser than Earth’s. Whereas evidence shows that the atmosphere of Mars used to be thicker.

NASA has 16 years of data to identify and quantify clouds on Mars. This data has been collected by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). It has been studying Mars since 2006. The instrument of this orbiter has taken many pictures of Mars. In these, the clouds appear like arches. The NASA team is taking the help of the public to mark these arches.

A recent study has revealed that a region of Mars may have been ‘repeatedly habitable’. Scientists have come to this conclusion by searching for soil-bearing sediments inside the Margaritifer Terra region. The region has some of the most widely preserved landforms. It was formed by running water on its surface.
