The pictures that show saltwater in Mars
August 4, 2011
NASA scientists believe they found saltwater in Mars according some photographs taken from the Newton crater near to the Ecuador of the red planet.
The images from the program “Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter” (MRO) show some lines in the surface and according to experts they would be saltwater flows that appear in spring and summer and disappear in the winter of the neighbor planet.
They said it is not fresh water because it would be frozen due to the low temperatures of the zone. At the contrary, the saltwater stayed liquid in these conditions.
However, the scientists confessed that these evidences are not enough to be a hundred per cent sure that these lines are saltwater flows. Nevertheless they are very optimistic.
