NASA Finds 'Strong' Evidence For Water On Mars

Scientists have discovered evidence for liquid salt water on the surface of Mars. They’ve discovered that lines on the surface of the planet known as “recurring slope lineae” are formed when salt water trickles down slopes. Scientists thought that they might form this way, but now they have evidence to support this idea. Their study was published today in the journal Nature Geosciences. Using a new technique, scientists were able to detect the presence of “hydrated salts” in the lines. We already know there is water in the form of ice on Mars. But this announcement confirms that there is liquid water on the surface too.
