Extensive Water in Mars Interior


www.carnegiescience.edu said:

Until now, Earth was the only planet known to have vast reservoirs of water in its interior. Scientists analyzed the water content of two Martian meteorites originating from inside the Red Planet. They found that the amount of water in places of the Martian mantle is vastly larger than previous estimates and is similar to that of Earth’s. The results not only affect what we know about the geologic history of Mars, but also have implications for how water got to the Martian surface. The data raise the possibility that Mars could have sustained life.

I think we need to go to Mars, the rovers can send back a lot of information but nothing can take place of a human doing the research.

While I agree with you I dont think we are ready for something like that yet. heck they just retired the shuttles and cut Nasa budget again which isn't that large to begin with when you consider it against other things like defense. I think as a society we are not looking to space anymore. It's a different time than 20 years ago. Too many people  care about what celebrity reality show comes on this week or who is going to be voted off american idol than what we can find out in space. Sad to say but we arent the innovater's we used to be.

I always had a hunch that water existed on Mars. Note that by "hunch," I mean that it was something I wanted to believe despite having no logical reason to. But apparently logic didn't matter. Hooray for me! And Mars as well.

Does Mars have 'oceans' of water inside it ?

I certainly hope so. What a great stepping stone for space exploration Mars could become (providing we could tap into this resource).

There is easier water than this to be had on Mars, it has substantial polar ice caps.

Lol, cheers Waspie.

Typical, I only added the "providing we could tap into this resource" as a safety net to stop you jumping on my comment.

I don't care who goes as long as somebody goes. To do it, it is going to take an international effort, anyway.

4 representatives from each continent to explore mars sounds like it. it would hopefully take their minds off future wars or world domination
