Wasn’t red the original color of Mars? Indeed, during this time the neighboring planet Earth has earned the nickname of ‘Red Planet’.
When you say Mars, the first thing that comes to mind is the spread of the Red Desert. In short, the planet has always been associated with the color red.
This is actually quite natural as this planet would appear red in the night sky, even to the naked eye. However, now NASA provides the results of their exploration which shows another color on Mars.

This is the true color of Mars
Mars is one of the most familiar planets. Lots of research on this neighboring planet Earth.
In fact, there are allegations that Mars could be a substitute for Earth as a habitat for living things. By the time you know Mars, you’ll be even more familiar with the term ‘red planet’.
Mangal did not get the surname without any reason. But because the planet reflects red in the night sky when viewed with binoculars or the naked eye.
However, what if the true color of Mars is not actually red? If someone says that Mars is blue, you will ignore it and take it as a joke.
But now it looks different because of NASA’s observations. As a large space agency and having sophisticated equipment, NASA has many explorers on the Red Planet.
The NASA rover orbits the planet to see what happens inside. Now, a NASA rover has released several images showing new colors on Mars.
The picture has blue lines that are clearly visible above the surface of the planet.

Captured by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO)
The original color images of Mars released by NASA are the result of their rover robot, namely Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO).
This rover has captured an area spanning hundreds of meters of the Martian surface. Each pixel of the image is equal to 25 feet on the surface of Mars.
The blue lines on the surface of Mars are also a beautiful sight. The area, called Gamboa Crater, is located in the northern hemisphere of the planet.

why are you so blue?
This may be a question that is swirling in your mind. The answer lies in how NASA processes the image.
In this case ‘fake color’ is the correct name. Because the blue color is actually the same red color as the other planets.
But the system gives it a bluish tinge with little variation in the frequency of the light the planet reflects.
The areas with blue lines show the geological structure of the planet. This will greatly help the analysis to find out how the geological structure of Mars is contained and to understand it in more detail.
So, in fact the original color of Mars remains red. Whereas the blue color seen in the MRO image is simply the result of the system process and actually remains in color like other surfaces. (R10/HR-Online)
