NASA discovers meteoritic evidence of Mars water reservoir

Provided by Dwayne Brown, NASA NASA and an international team of planetary scientists have found evidence in meteorites on Earth that indicates Mars has a distinct and global reservoir of water or ice near its surface. Though controversy...

Martian Meteorites Offer Evidence Of Early Atmosphere On Red Planet
2014-04-17 06:47:34

Martian meteorites that fell to Earth are revealing secrets of an early atmosphere on Mars that is hidden in the chemical signatures of each ancient rock. Geologists, who collected and studied 40 of these otherworldly rocks, have found an important key...

Martian Atmosphere May Have Experienced Greenhouse Conditions In Ancient Times

The combination of molecular hydrogen, carbon dioxide and water could have created a greenhouse effect on Mars nearly four billion years ago, raising temperatures to the point that liquid water could exist.

New research shows that hostile conditions on Mars were much worse 600,000 years ago than they are today, with evidence suggesting the red planet once had a much dustier, stormier atmosphere.

Researchers have long debated the prospect of finding water on Mars, but a new report from researchers in Spain shows that the Red Planet could have been frozen while still maintaining a habitat for liquid water flows at one point in its history.

Planetary scientists have puzzled for years over an apparent contradiction on Mars. Abundant evidence points to an early warm, wet climate on the red planet, but there’s no sign of the widespread carbonate rocks, such as limestone, that should have formed in such a climate.

A study of the thermodynamics of clays found on Mars suggests that little carbon dioxide could have been present during their formation, which contradicts a popular theory of the early Martian atmosphere and will send researchers looking for other explanations for clay formation.
