NASA's New Horizons spacecraft captured this high-resolution enhanced color view of Pluto on July 14, 2015. In the same mission, there were images captured of windswept dunes on the dwarf planet's surface.
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured what looks like Morse Code on the Martian soil. But according to experts, these were formed due to the winds on Mars.
NASA's Curiosity Rover discovered sand dunes that are comparable to those found underwater on Earth.
A new study suggests revealed that bedforms on Mars, which looks like the bedform on Earth's underwater, were formed not by water but by the higher kinematic viscosity of air greatly affecting the sand on the low-density atmosphere of the red planet.
Titan is one heck of a mysterious world. As the largest moon orbiting Saturn, this heavenly body plays host to a murky, dense atmosphere and vast seas of methane. These seas even contain "disappearing islands" - strange floating objects that appear and disappear randomly. Another mystery was the origin of its dunes - towering formations that the gentle wind of Titan could not have possibly created. Now, researchers have finally identified the true dune creator.
The mystery of Titan's windswept dunes is finally solved, thanks to a research team at the University of Tennessee, a new study says.
The National Park Service announced earlier this week that the mysterious holes that appear and vanish in the sands of Mount Baldy at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore will keep the landmark closed indefinitely, according to The Associated Press.
