Water Has Been Found on Mars

Liquid water has been discovered on Mars.

The water, in the form of a lake, was detected via radar beneath Mars’ southern polar ice cap.

Researchers from the Italian Space Agency made this incredible discovery. Their research was published today by the academic journal Science.

The researchers’ evidence was collected by the Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding instrument, or MARSIS. From May 2012 to December 2015, MARSIS was used to send radar pulses throughout Mars’ Planum Australe region. MARSIS then measured how these radio waves reflected onto the European Space Agency’s Mars Express spacecraft, where MARSIS is located.

MARSIS then revealed the liquid water lake. For more details, you can read the study here.

Until now, there hasn’t been any evidence of stable water forms on Mars, according to the researchers. The researchers will soon use 3-D imaging to further investigate the lake, according to CNN.
