Nasa Scientists Discover Evidence For Flowing Water On Mars

Washington, D.C.:Sept 29; Scientists have discovered the strongest evidence yet that "flowing liquid water" exists on Mars, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said Monday morning.

"Water is essential to life as we know it," the researchers behind a study published today in Nature Geoscience today write. "The presence of liquid water on Mars today has astrobiological, geologic and hydrologic implications and may affect future human exploration."

The study, led by geomorphologist Lujendra Ojha of Georgia Tech, utilizes new data collected by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter to show evidence for recurrent seepage of liquid water along Martian crater walls.

After months of research, Mr Ojha concluded the streaks were likely dried salts left by salt water running on the surface of Mars during the warmer months.

The researchers say further exploration is warranted to determine whether any microscopic life might exist on modern-day Mars. They based their findings on data from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has been circling Mars since 2006.
