Imagine the impression of impressive forces on Mars with something; already in your tweed phone.
Although a design designed specifically for Mars is not yet done, the rover Curiosity is fitted with something at your cellphone. No mind appears to have created Mount Sharp. It has its device that measures its force; including speed. As the rover was blowing around a 3 mile mountain in the center of Gale Crater, scientists prove an innovative way to find an app for that.
"I realized that you can download an app on your phone and, not in much detail, but you can measure [the force of Earth’s gravity] because you have herbal appliances at your phone, "said Kevin Lewis, assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University and the main author of a study published in Science, to Gizmodo.
What did Lewis and his team want to find out if Mount Sharp was due to deposited objects to collect or mount a piece; decline from within Gale Crater. Scientists usually understand how there are substandard rocks with gravimetry, or a degree of changes in a local central area. To make up for a gravimeter, they benefited from the accelerometer and gyroscopes of the rover.
The accelerated data scientists used the rover built around Mount Sharp and made changes to place, temperature and increase, and all of which could affect its equipment. Although this is not the most reliable way, it has revealed that the rocks have been disturbed by & # 39; move longer than expected. Dirt was much more likely than scientists think it would be, which indicates that the sediment is on the other side.
So what does this technology need to say about Mount Sharp?
Gale Crater has already been created by the beginning of Mount Sharp, so there was no decline in the creation of the Martian roof. It rises from the ground due to sediment that was blown into the crack and its; Going into a tree that would continue to run; grow over the lambs.
The survey designed on cell phone app has been posted on Gale Crater's credentials, and even though it has been. oppose another, grow closer to & # 39; Understand what's happening inside the geological area.
"My first thing was that it was an engineering trick to use instruments on board the rover that was not designed as science devices for science, "he also said to Gizmodo," the Martian geologist and Rice's assistant professor, Kirsten Siebach. "This helps us to understand better about the low porosity cliffs; may be on Mars. "
You can not deny that, even with its inequalities, that it was a movie of a generation in the idea of the app.
