The European Space Agency says its Mars Express spacecraft has discovered some depositional process in Mars' equatorial regions. Scientists said the geological evidence, revealed by erosion, comes from the mineralogical composition of the Aram Chaos region, a crater about 175 miles in diameter located nearly directly on the martian equator. The ESA said the spacecraft's instrumentation suggests a significant amount of sulfates and ferric oxides.

When Mars was still young, more than four billion years ago, a large asteroid sailed out of the sky and slammed into an area known today as western Arabia Terra. The object hit hard enough that it blasted a basin at least 280 kilometers (175 miles) wide. The basin is now named Aram Chaos.
