Did you know about largest quake ever observed on Mars??
A lot of activities are going on Mars. To study all these activities, NASA has done some MARS missions. One of them is InSight Mars Lander. It is designed to study the seismic activity on mars and provide accurate 3D models of the planet’s interior. But recently InSight lander has detected the largest quake on mars.
This quake was estimated to be magnitude 5, it is the quake biggest ever detected on another planet. Back on 25 Aug, 2021, the previous largest quake occurred with an estimated magnitude of 4.2. Till now, more than 1,313 quakes InSight has detected since landing on Mars in November 2018.
For mars Quakes are strange because the planet doesn’t have tectonic plates like Earth, But it does have volcanically active regions that can cause rumbles. According to the scientist, this quake is sure to provide a view into the planet like no other.
