Researchers find evidence revealing Mars' water-rich history!

Scientists at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), who led an international research team in the study, created a synthetic version of a hydrogen-containing mineral known as whitlockite.

Do you know Mars had water in recent past? A study says so!

The researchers suggest that a glacier-covered early Mars may have experienced long warm periods, lasting up to 10 million years at a time, caused by a thick atmosphere of carbon dioxide and hydrogen.

Lakes, snowmelt-fed streams on Mars formed much later than previously thought

NASA says these results provide insight into the climate history of the Red Planet and suggest the surface conditions at this later time may also have been suitable for microbial life.

Gypsum formation may tell us about water on Mars
