New theory suggests that the Mars' moon Phobos might actually collapse one day and form set of rings around the red planet.
The ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) has captured photographs of Mars’ largest moon Phobos as part of the second set of its science instruments test during its arrival on the Red Planet.
Scientists believe that understanding the mysterious impact crater on the surface of Martian moon Phobos will greatly benefit and help protect the Earth from future asteroid impacts.
The origin of the chain of craters on the surface of Phobos has been finally explained.
The probe to find the origin of Mars oddly-shaped moons, Phobos and Deimos had yielded results that contradict former theories. Two recent studies suggest that the moons weren't asteroids captured by Mar's gravitational force, but remnants from a giant impact between Mars and a smaller protoplanet.
After Mars' larger moon Phobos is shattered by gravity, Mars will likely have an all-new appearance.
