It turned out that Mars wasn’t as silent as first believed. Instead, there is intense seismic activity on the red planet, which is rumbling and groaning.
The planet is experiencing dynamic shocks deep below its surface, and right now, molten lava may be pouring just below the Martian crust. If it is true, it will alter our knowledge of Martian geodynamics that we have amassed over the years and imply that volcanic activity on the red planet is not only feasible but is continuing, and that it is happening more often than anticipated.
What does this rumbling, nevertheless, mean? How will it alter how we see Martian geology? Lastly, and most significantly, how will this revolutionary finding affect our efforts to find both past and contemporary Martian life?
