NASA has announced an unusual rediscovery: the legendary Star Trek Starfleet logo was found on the surface of Mars.
The insignia were declared by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter of the Red Planet orbiting agency and the MRO HiRISE (The camera crew of the High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment at the University of Arizona explains that the strange chevron shapes are footprints of old sand dunes :
These strange chevron shapes in the southeast of Hellas Planitia are the result of a complex history of dunes, lava, and wind.
Long ago there were large crescent-shaped (Barchan) dunes that moved across this area, and the lava flowed over the plain and the dunes, but not over them.The lava froze, but these dunes still towered like islands, but they were still dunes, and the wind continued to blow. Eventually, the sandpiles that were the dunes wandered away, leaving behind these "footprints" in the lava plains, which are also referred to as "dune prints" and drawing the presence of dunes surrounded by lava.
Entrepreneurial viewers will find that these features look strikingly like a famous logo: and you would be right, but it's just a coincidence.
