Oh dear believe me I have no need or want for your sympathy, I hold that we do NOT go before our time and if I do then I am gonna haunt some sucka
for a while.
Now back to the post it was about the volcanic - or otherwise plume that was reported on Mars which unless I miss my guess is supposed to
geologically dormant, there are a number of reason's to believe the planet is such as the damage it suffered probably from a severe cataclysm
potentially an impact event which created both the valles marineras and the olympus monze features, given how large the olympus monze is to the rest
of the planet being in fact the largest known volcano in the solar system - unless I have that fact wrong - any continued geological activity in the
region beyond settling of the feature under it's own mass toward the planet's gravitation center would be extremely interesting to say the least.
Now it could be an out gassing or an explosion of from a trapped gas pocket, if mars is still to some degree living below the surface it could also
be down to methane or other decay related organic gas production as well as potential natural sources.
What little we know of the planet is that it is supposedly approaching a cold core state given impetus to that argument by the fact it's planetary
magnetosphere is believed to have died eon's ago resulting in the solar radiation laden particle wind then stripping the planets atmosphere away into
space over a relatively short period after the magnetosphere lost it's deflective shielding ability.
Other oddity's about the planet are numerous but drawing attention to it's moon's is even more curious, phobos and deimos are believed by some to be
in the wrong orbit's unless they are actually hollow body's.
Phobos even resembles an asteroid with peculiar features such as linear striation's and almost too regular cratering which has led some to ponder if
it is not possible that the moonlet itself could be an artificially captured body were a nuclear drive may have been used to crawl along it's surface
scoop out mass were it was a needed and then after heating that mass into a plasma gas in a nuclear furnace used it to propel the asteroid from the
belt into mars orbit, perhaps as a resource for an attempt to either terra form or even to save the dying planet - of course this fall's strictly
outside of your own bookish opinion of what you regard to be the fact's.
The fact remain's that a plume of material was seen over a supposedly almost seismically dead world with a dying core and no obvious active tectonic
type activity on or near it's surface and this is more than intriguing.
It could have been down to an unobserved impact event but given it's duration this is highly unlikely.
Which leads us back to mars own native geology, it must still be at least partially active, if an impact DID knock mars core for six resulting in
it's weird remaining magnetic field's and loss of it's unified field this may suggest that the core may still therefore be in some way shape or form
still active and that is more than intriguing but given how little we really understand our own planets much more alive core and how different it must
be to the martian core it is a form of intriguing that shall have to remain so until such a time that we actually manage to get true deep core
drilling apparatus in multiple locations on the red planet to perform on site analysis of the deep rock strata and garner a more in depth
understanding of the planet's geological structuring.
There that make you feel better, you can go back to your leaf nest now apeth.
