A Venus deposit on Mars

Fig. 1 Medusae Fosse Formation

A recently published (JGR: Planets)study of a unique deposit the surface of Mars titled “The Density of the Medusae Fossae Formation: Implications for its Composition, Origin, and Importance in Martian History by Ojha and Lewis of JHU, reports a low density deposit “estimated to be 2 × 106 km2 (20% of the continental United States) but could have once covered an area greater than 5 × 106 km2 (50% of the continental United States). The current volume of the MFF exceeds 1.4 × 106 km3, making it one of the largest sedimentary deposits on the Martian surface (Bradley et al., 2002; Tanaka, 2000).” The MFF is two orders of magnitude larger than the largest of this type on Earth.” The MFF also has an anomalously high concentration of elemental sulfur and chlorine which are major components of volcanic gases.

Fig. 2 The unusual shape of the MFF  is unlike any known volcanic deposit.

This deposit is completely different from the surface on which it lies and, of course, geologists have estimated its age at 3 billion years. “we find the joint radar and gravity constraints imply a dry and highly porous rock unit.” The authors “propose that the MFF was deposited by explosive volcanic eruptions.”

Cyclic Catastrophism

The RigVeda reveals that proto-Venus (Aditi) was born from an impact on Jupiter 6,000 years ago. The name A – Diti, means un – bounded, in other words rampaging throughout the solar system. Because of this, proto-Venus was seen in many different aspects, and as a result was given different names. These aspect-names were summed up as a class called Adityas, which the Vedas state ” the wise understand that the same body is called by manifold names”. Proto-Venus had innumerable close encounters with Mars (Indra), which was in Venus’ current orbit and full of life at that date. This was addressed in the Vedas as Indra consuming large drafts of Soma (manna) from Varuna (an Aditya), because water in the atmosphere of Mars froze making it white as it was drawn toward the more massive proto-Venus.

Proto-Venus also had two close encounters with the Earth during its first century. Proto-Venus transferred angular momentum and energy to Mars causing its orbital radius to increase, while proto-Venus’ decreased. In the RigVeda this was described as Indra growing larger due to the Soma he had consumed. This brought Mars into an orbit which crossed the orbit of the Earth. As both planets approached the Earth, Mars’ father Tvastri (an Aditya) came so close to Indra that Indra was said to smash Tvastri’s foot to pieces in the RigVeda.

At that date proto-Venus was a molten sphere of heavy elements with a basalt surface and over a million small domes jetting sulfur into space. Since it was 10,000 K none of the lighter elements could settle on its surface (which is still true today), while Mars was an ancient rigid body. They approached very close to one another approaching the vicinity of the Earth. At their closest point, the liquid proto-Venus was tidally stretched out into the shape of a droplet with the pointed end toward Mars. This pointed end was called Tvastri’s ‘foot’ in the RigVeda. Thus the foot of Tvastri actually impacted Mars surface. Some cultures myths stated that lightning was exchanged in that incident.

The MFF studied in the cited paper is the actual mass 2.6 X 1018 kg instantaneously deposited  on Mars. When the high temperature basalt entered the oxygen atmosphere and struck the watery surface it exploded just as material from an explosive volcano, but a much more powerful explosion. The sulfur detected in the MFF was from proto-Venus and the chlorine was from the salty water on the surface of Mars. This deposit was not formed over 500 million years, as suggested by one geologist but instantaneously 6,000-years BP.

The RigVeda is the most ancient book in the world and reveals the hidden history of the Earth and the solar system. Look for my newest book “The Cosmic Origin of the RigVeda”, to be published soon.
