By: Sarah Haines – Popular Mechanics A new satellite image has revealed the stunning view of the planet Earth seen from space by the Hubble Space Telescope.
The image, released by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, shows a massive crater in the center of the Earth with a wide range of geological features including large plains and valleys, lakes and a large, ancient river.NASA’s Earth Observatory tweeted a new image on Monday showing a new feature of the moon, showing that it was formed as a result of the Moon’s collision with the Earth about 2 billion years ago.NASA scientists say the moon is likely formed from a collision between the Earth and an asteroid and that a lunar impact is the most likely cause.
The Earth is a rocky body that orbits the Sun, and as a comet orbits the sun, it gets sucked into the inner solar system.
This is where the Moon formed.NASA says the new image also reveals that the Moon is a massive satellite that is orbiting the Sun.
The images reveal that the moon formed from the collision between an Earth-like planet and an Earthlike asteroid.
The NASA team, including scientists from the Goddard Space Center, the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, the National Science Foundation and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, were working with the Hubble telescope to determine the extent of a crater in Antarctica, which is known to harbor an impact crater, or crater, that formed billions of years ago when a comet collided with Earth.NASA released the image, titled Moon Impact Crater, on Monday.
The image shows a large crater in front of a bright, flat region called the Southern Pole, which appears to be a remnant of the impact that created the crater.NASA also released a new video on Monday from the NASA Mars rover Curiosity that shows a variety of geological structures on Mars that indicate the impact occurred as a meteorite.
The images released on Monday by NASA, which include images from the Hubble space telescope, are part of the Mars Science Laboratory mission.NASA officials say the Hubble mission has revealed an ancient, impact-prone region of Mars that is likely to have formed when the Moon collided with the planet.
NASA has found the ancient crater to be located at the center, or center of, the ancient Earth-moon system.NASA is hoping to take a rover to this area in 2021.NASA and the European Space Agency are the lead agencies for this mission.
