Bizarre ‘polygons’ shoot across the surface of Mars

It’s spring on Mars and the mysterious polygons are in bloom, a new image from the High Resolution Imaging Experiment (HIRISE) orbital camera shows.

Taken on March 30, 2022, the image reveals a tick of white zigzags shooting across Martian soil at high latitudes, with occasional splashes of black and blue fog between them. Zigzags and colorful sprays are recognizable features of the Martian Spring, when hidden underground ice reservoirs rest on the dry surface of Mars, wrote researchers from the University of Arizona – which manages the HIRISE mission – in statement on Monday (June 20).
