NASA Releases Images of 'Worms' Inside Crater On Mars
infrared HiRISE image captured by Reconnaissance Orbiter
NASA has released strange image of a crater on MARS containing what seems to look like giant worm-like creatures.
The colored infrared HiRISE image which was captured by the space agency Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows a bedrock of material scattered across the surface following an impact.
The bizarre features resemble could be Martian insects.

rt.com reports: This find shares similarities to others discovered previously on the red planet, according to NASA.
Dubbed the ‘Amazing technicolor ejecta blanket,’ the colors represent different rocks and minerals exposed on the surface.
Blue areas in the image depict iron-rich minerals, like olivine and pyroxene while lighter colors, such as yellow, indicate the presence of altered rocks.
The possible sources of the ejecta is most likely from two unnamed craters, NASA said.
The full scale image shows numerous linear features in an east-west direction, suggesting the flow direction of the ejecta from its unnamed host crater.
Following the features, it is clear it stems from the bottom of the two unnamed craters, NASA found, noting that if the ejecta had originated from the top crater, the linear features would trend northwest to southeast.
