NASA infrared 'Anti-Atlas Mountains' image gives seabed psychedelic appearance

Terra features five on-board instruments monitor various things on Earth, including an infrared sensor.

NASA revealed in another statement how the layers consisted of limestone, sandstone, claystone and gypsum and formed the ocean bed.

The unique way in which these layers folded on top of one another created the phenomena known as the Anti-Atlas Mountains.

NASA said: “In this image of southwest Morocco, visible, near infrared and short wavelength infrared bands are combined to dramatically highlight the different rock types, and illustrate the complex folding.”

The release of the incredible image coincides with the news a NASA astronaut is about to pass a major milestone.
