Strong evidence Mars was covered in water longer than previously thought!
With water comes life…
It may not be the little grey guys with big eyes, or the tall green men with antennae, but chances are there was life on another planet other than Earth. Science has proven with water comes potential life, and with all the information coming from the rover on Mars, new evidence shows water may have covered the red planet longer than scientists thought!
“The goal of NASA’s Curiosity rover mission has been to find out if Mars was ever habitable, and it has been very successful in showing that Gale crater once held a lake with water that we would even have been able to drink, but we still don’t know how long this habitable environment endured. What this finding tells us is that, even when the lake eventually evaporated, substantial amounts of groundwater were present for much longer than we previously thought. Thus, further expanding the window for when life might have existed on Mars.” (mirror.co.uk)
And this is just one planet out of millions!
Some good food for thought for the inner-nerd!
