A very dark spot on Mars could be an entrance to a deep hole or cavern, according to scientists studying imagery taken by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The geological oddity measures some 330 feet (100 meters) across and is located on an otherwise bright dusty lava plain to the northeast of Arsia Mons, one of the four giant Tharsis volcanoes on the red planet.

The hole might be the sort of place that could support life or serve as a habitat for future astronauts, researchers speculated.



---------------------------------------------------------------

has anyone read this? i know that obviously since mars is rocky that finding cave like structures would be of no surprise. But a hole of that size? i would think that if it were made by some sort of asteroid that you would see your typical crater or some form of impact left behind.

can anyone help contribute what could of possible made this?
