Mars core details revealed

The data collected by the Mars probe made it possible to confirm that the planet consists of a very thick crust and a large molten core.

New scientific data was obtained using the American probe InSight. He has a seismometer, which has registered more than 730 Marsquakes in more than two years. These mechanical vibrations pass through the rock mass, and therefore change depending on them.

As it turned out, the crust of Mars is 24 to 72 kilometers thick. The entire hard shell of the planet can reach a thickness of 500 kilometers. For the Earth, this figure is much lower. The iron-nickel core of Mars was recognized as liquid. Its radius reaches 1830 kilometers. This is more than half the radius of Mars.

Because of these discoveries, scientists had to rethink early ideas about the planet.
