Mysterious rumblings have been detected coming from inside of Mars. The space agency’s scientists believe the seismic events are caused by a sudden release of energy from the planet’s interior.
The researchers believe the seismic events may be caused by a sudden release of energy from the planet’s interior, but the nature of that release remains unknown and puzzling.
Mars called Cerberus Fossae, where two other previous candidate events are believed to have originated.
Although these rumblings have sometimes been called “Marsquakes” the planet is not believed to have a similarly active tectonic system like Earth’s that causes earthquakes.
The previous seismic events detected by the space agency’s InSight lander which arrived on the planet’s surface in 2018 occurred almost a full Martian year ago, or two Earth years, during the Martian northern summer.
