Water Could Be Flowing On Mars Today

Recommended Posts

Dark streaks on crater and valley walls may indicate that brackish water currently flows across the surface of Mars. New images and analysis suggest the slopes around the Red Planet's largest extinct volcano, Olympus Mons, contain dark stains caused by brine flowing down hill.

The discovery indicates that the substantial underground ice deposits on Mars can sometimes melt and flow across the surface.

Excellent find Gareth, a few statements that really got my attention were:

"She told BBC News Online that she had examined images of Mars taken at different times and had seen new streaks form within time intervals of months."

"Images taken of the Mangala Valles region show that the dark streaks are being formed at the present time."

"Two images taken a few months apart show new streaks have appeared."

Very interesting discovery smile.gif
