The size is smaller than the size of the meteor entered the Earth's atmosphere in 2013, and fall in Russia. Experts explain, though not comparable to the size of the entry into the Earth, but has a considerable impact on Mars.

As reported by Softpedia on Friday, May 23, 2014, experts revealed a greater impact for Mars is due to the red planet has less atmosphere than the Earth. Thus, more prone to collisions with objects falling from the sky.

Incidentally, the existence of this crater documented by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. According to Bruce Cantor, that the crater has not appeared on March 27, 2012, and then a day later, the image was appears.

Therefore, NASA assumes that the incident occurred between the March 27 or 28, 2012. "When I was doing the usual weather monitoring, suddenly my eyes caught something," he said further. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SOFTPEDIA | SCIENCEDAILY]
