Scientists seen giant skull from space NASA released photo know

American space agency NASA releases such pictures from time to time, which are shocking. This time the space agency has shown a giant 'skull'. Actually it is not a skull, but it definitely looks like one. The picture was clicked from the International Space Station (ISS) revolving around the Earth 400 kilometers above the Earth. Actually, it is a volcanic area, which is spread in the Sahara desert in the area of ​​Chad and Libya. This photo taken on February 12 was released by NASA's Earth Observatory on October 31.

The skull-like shape seen in the picture is a 3300 feet wide volcanic caldera. It was formed due to volcanic eruptions that took place over thousands of years. The white color visible in the skull-like shape is actually a salty mixture of sodium carbonate decahydrate, sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride and sodium sulphate. There are also many hills in the picture, which have given it a skull-like shape.

According to the report of Space.com, even though this place has become barren today, there used to be an icy lake here about 14 thousand years ago. According to the report, in the 1960s, scientists had discovered fossils of sea snails and plankton in this area. Fossils of millions of years old algae have also been found from this area.

According to the report, despite the discovery of such old fossils, this place is the youngest volcanic area. The volcanoes present around it are said to be even older than this. Anyone can be surprised to see this skull visible from space. However, NASA has not given information about the astronaut who took the photo.
