Water on MarsIntroduction Proof that indeed there is water that exists on Mars can be traced to the initial observations of directed scenes made by Mariner 9 and Viking. There have however been other recent images from Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Express which outstandingly endorse that waters have sculpted the Martian surface at least sporadically through its history (Knoll & Grotzhinger, 2006). It is through the Mars Exploration Rovers’ chance and spirit that led to the increase in evidence for all-encompassing rock–water chemical relations in the areas which happened to be the landing spot of these isolated geologists. OMEGA and THEMIS have however demonstrated that comparable processes took place in many parts of the planet. The above-mentioned annotations have been viewed as hopeful signs that Mars may also have an opportunity to support life and further do so in subterranean oases courtesy of the close link between water and biological activity on Earth (Ball, 2005). There is, conversely, a lot more to take into consideration. This is so in that, in as much as water seems to be essential for life, at the minimum as it subsists on Earth and can be considered on Mars, it is not enough. Water, by Student’s Name
itself does not assure habitability (Baker & Milton, 1974). This paper seeks to look into the subject of water in Mars and the different opportunities that come with this possibility.Image taken by sciencefocus.com According to discoveries made by a number of astronomers, there exists an enormous subversive lake of liquid water prowling just underneath the surface of Mars. This is certainly a
