Water on Mars!

December 7, 2006

Whilst going through podcasts on my mobile today I saw an amazing video from NASA of evidence of water flow on Mars within the last 10 years. I had to watch it twice and check the date wasn’t April 1st 🙂

The scientists are using the huge amount of satellite photographs that have been taken of Mars over the last few decades and comparing them with recent ones to view any visual differences on the surface. Using this technique they discovered a very unusual anomaly on the surface of one the craters. According to the video it looks like water has built up behind the ice on the walls of the crater and then ejected out onto the surface.
Watch the JPL report and sign up for their podcast feed which includes both audio and video content.
