Our History books have taught us about Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We know what those impregnable nuclear bombs did to these two cities. Along with these facts and factoids, we also saw the picture of what these bombs created, i.e. Mushroom Cloud. This precarious cloud has always meant destruction. But when such a cloud is seen on Mars, clearly visible from space, it causes more than extirpation. It causes serious confusion. The picture of this cloud has been taken by Mars Orbiter sent by India in March.This inscrutable mystery is digging up the minds of hundreds of scientists right now!
The structure strikingly looks analogous to a mushroom cloud.
All the features of this cloud have akin resemblance to those of a mushroom cloud.
The Valles Marineris Canyon is considered to be the biggest canyon present in our solar system. It is 4 times larger than Grand Canyon in breadth. That pretty much sums up the idea of its size.
As scientists haven't been able to decrypt the mystery of this cloud, all other speculations are being circulated by creative minds. Some say this has been created due to some nuclear war which has eradicated all the lives previously present on Mars. Some other 'theory' determines this to be some alien intervene. Although, last year, plasma physicist Dr John Brandenburg said he believed ancient Martians known as Cydonians and Utopians were massacred in the attack - and evidence of the genocide can still be seen today. Contrary to this, Dr Jonti Horner, astronomer at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia, told: 'Fun as it would be to imagine that this is evidence of nuclear weapons on Mars...that's sadly just not the case.' Well, none are to be believed completely, obviously. But as long as there are no concrete proof, conjectures will go on and around. And as no one can intercede one's free will and thinking power, let the imaginations fly with numerous colors!
