In this interview, Ernst Hauber, a planetary geologist at the DLR Institute of Planetary Research, talks about the geology of Mars, its long-lasting volcanism, its tectonics and the development of the crust of the planet.

the How we need on
Marseille we see surfaces with diverse ages that's a big difference tourists where most of the
surface that we see today is young they resistible because the
older surfaces Our continuously destroyed by plate tectonics Morris is among
played tennis so the entire surface is composed of 1 individual plate and as a
consequence we do not have a mountain
ranges such the Alps or the amount it shows many
morphological features that we know from we for example we have
huge will Kano we have tectonic features and we have drive the only son of geologic activity are
dunes but I shifted around by the wind these analysis of these
surfaces tells us that Mars must have been much more
intensive and chose activities must've been more heavily in the early days more than
3 billion years ago and since then it has gradually declined today a particularly
interesting tectonic future Morris other lawless man there is a system of tectonic troughs
which drummer decreed her in the
Western Hemisphere these trusts are up to 10 kilometers deep and the spectacular images which we derived by our Sarah camera shows that the scars of the Kenyan
are composed of stacks far-flung feels we know that these last shows which give us
insight into these chemical bars where produced at the sources spot you choose the largest Kano
tectonic province in the entire solar system they float down the slopes of sources and then formed a euchre cutoff
assaults in these areas around 4 hours later the most where there
is cut into this but told and
now we see on the walls of murders be spectacular allow sequences devolution of Morris
was quite different than that of the reason is the different sides of the planetary body
and as a consequence it's a much smaller masks the Moss is
responsible for the heat production and the interior by radioactive decay and since Morris
much smaller there was less heat available after a certain amount of time so the intensity on Mars
declined after that state 1 billion years I'm quite dramatically the
big question if is still active or not is yet research we cannot
tell because we have not seen so far any fresh
Lofaro which would have erupted from an active volcano on the other hand we cannot exclude that
Morris still has enough in trouble activity that maybe tomorrow maybe 1 million years and 10
million years we would see when you look at
the U.N
