European scientists revealed the secret of soaring sand on Mars

Scientists have uncovered the unusual properties of the sand on the red planet, as reported by the publication «Constantinople».

As it turned out, the Martian sand is endowed with the ability to fly, and by some time to remain in limbo, hovering above the surface. European experts have found that this phenomenon provoke temperature changes in the summer.

The scientists explained that at the time of the onset of summer on Mars contained in the soil, the water again becomes liquid, but because of the low atmospheric pressure almost immediately begins to boil. The vapour particles rise up, clinging to a grain of sand.

The effect of evaporation is enhanced due to the low gravity on the red planet, which is smaller than the earth a hundred times. As a result, the sand breaks away freely from the surface and hovers over her.

IReactor previously reported that astronomers first recorded the pulsating lights at the South pole of Jupiter.
