Water on Mars, Confirmed By NASA

Green confirmed, “Mars indeed, 3 billion years ago, had extensive water resources but something happened. Mars suffered a major climate change and lost its surface water.” He also added, “Mars is not the dry, arid planet that we thought of in the past.”

This announcement has been made after new findings from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) detected signatures of hydrated salts on slopes at Hale crater, which shows that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars.
