NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) & ldquo; Overlooking the red planet, often captures a variety of fantasy formations, such as the "Puppet Beaker" surface structure and "Paced Beans" People & rdquo; 陨 pit and so on. On Wednesday, the University of Arizona's MRO HiRise camera team released a new image of the Martian dune and found it to resemble the classic Starfleet logo.

“The enterprising audience will find these features look like a famous logo,” the team joked.


This interesting Martian dune has a long history of geology. It was originally a crescent-shaped dune, but part of the sand was eventually blown away by the wind.


“These are also known as ‘sand molds and record the existence of sand dunes surrounded by lava,” explains planetary scientist Ross Beyer.

Beyer points out that the similarities with the Martian dunes and the “Star Trek” sign are “just coincidence”.
