India probe transmits new Mars image

The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) has published a detailed 3D image of Mars captured by its robotic probe Mangalyaan.

The image which was shot by Mangalyaan in late July is of the Ophir Chasma, a canyon in Mars, Isro said.

The agency added that the Ophir Chasma is part of the largest canyon system in the solar system.

India’s launch of its Mars mission in September 2014 marked the first time a nation successfully sent a mission to the red planet on its first attempt.

The image was captured at an altitude of 1,857km with a resolution of 96m, Isro said

A chasma is an elongated, steep depression on the surface of a planet

India shows the world again that they are gifted leaders in math, science and medicine.  Here are posts I wrote last year when India surprised  the world with the launch of  Mangalyaan to orbit Mars.

    GREAT SHARE!!
    I have had my eye on this for some time. With all the “Strange” things the Mars Rover picked up and had the ‘Tinfoil had people in research mode, I really hope if India find ‘Something they will share. NASA blank out too much of Mars images for my liking..What they blacking out? Why? What they hiding?

    Go to http://www.youtube.com and search key words like *Mars Anomaly *Mars Life *Mars Strange or *Mars Structures. Some of it was picked up by hackers while being beamed back to Earth to NASA..

    I am 50/50 on this subject. There is ‘Something. We would be foolish to dismiss out of hand the possibility there was never life on Mars. I have a theory that ‘Perhaps’ Our species wrecked Mars and a chosen amount of people came to Earth. NOW!! To take it a step further, so it ‘Kinda ties in. I offer the ‘Black Knight’ It’s in a Polar Orbit, 1st heard in the late 1800’s. Here it is here. Like all news we get it or we don’t. But like today’s ‘Russian Teardrop story’ I shared, if you dig hard enough you see news or ‘Something. Check this!!

    It is like join the dots or a puzzle, the more parts we find the more it points to something else. Now I know Religion tells a story of ‘God putting Adam and Eve’ onto Earth to then multiply and start our Human species. What if it was people from Mars and this mysterious craft that is 100% there in our Orbit, in a polar orbit our Science can’t do, it defies our Scientific logic as it goes around Earth pole to pole moving like the ISS does…

    Good share and opens a WHOLE hope of India being the country (Like Mexico and UFO’s, knowing UFO means just UFO, not alien) to show the world ‘Something

      LOL. . . Oh Shaun, I posted this because it was a positive story about Incredible India. Thanks for another perspective. I became glassy eyed after a few sentences, but imagine there are readers who will love your research! 🙂
