Prehistoric lakes have been discovered on Mars

Mars might have more liquid water than we earlier thought. The Red Planet might have an unbridged world of water lakes hiding below the southern ice cap on the red dusty, and dry planet.

Recent research held by researchers at Roma Tre University in Italy reinforces of 2018 discovery of ‘Lake’ water found on Mars, and now is extended to mention for about three new lakes. The researchers used radar data using the European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter to search for the detection of water.

“Now, taking into account more data and analyzing it differently, three new ponds have been discovered,” ESA said in a statement Monday. This study was later published its study in the journal Nature Astronomy on Monday.

The lakes seem to be sneaking through a strong layer of ice. The largest lake is about 19 miles (30 kilometers), where a string of smaller sized ponds surround it.  The researchers expect the water to be high in salt concentration to stay at liquid at low temperatures. “While it is not possible for water to remain stable on the surface today the new result opens the possibility that an entire system of ancient lakes might exist underground, perhaps millions or even billions of years old,” said ESA.

Where humans are busy searching for life factors such as—basic signs as microbial activity on Mars. Whereas, NASA’s new Perseverance rover will continue its search from the surface of Mars.

Liquid water reservoirs would add up to the look of life on Mars, but the reach to these lakes is exceedingly difficult as there comes about 1 mile in between.
