There was no water on the surface of Mars ... there was ice!

  • Vancouver: A team of Canadian scientists say that billions of years ago today, there were no water-filled oceans on Mars, but a red planet covered with ice with water flowing beneath it, which was extremely cold but liquid. ۔
  • Note that Mars is a dry planet with ice caps at the North Pole and the South Pole. However, after reviewing the features of the Martian surface, a large number of experts agree that in the distant past, billions of years before today, the planet's atmosphere was reasonably warm where the oceans and rivers were, and there was rain. Used to happen This hypothesis is called "hot and humid ancient Mars" which is widely accepted.
  • But scientists at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, say after a recent analysis that there must have been water on Mars in the distant past, but not in liquid form, but in the form of frozen ice.

  • According to a report published in the latest issue of the online research journal Nature Geoscience, experts have developed and used some new techniques to analyze the valleys and valleys of Mars.
  • Later, when they were compared to the structure of ice-covered waterways in the snow-capped islands (Canadian Arctic Archipelago) in the far north of Canada, very close to the North Pole, the two were strikingly similar. Appeared
  • With this in mind, they concluded that in the distant past, there were no oceans or rivers on the surface of Mars, but rather avalanches with very cold water flowing beneath their layers.
