Study Reveals Water Beneath Mars

Study Reveals Water Beneath Mars

"This water would be extremely cold, right at the point where it's about to freeze". On Earth, wherever we find liquid water, we also find life - so the discovery of geologically persistent liquid water on so many planetary bodies raises the possibility that life may be abundant throughout the Solar System. Some forms of microbial life are known to thrive in Earth's subglacial environments, but could underground pockets of salty, sediment-rich liquid water on Mars also provide a suitable habitat, either now or in the past? Mars was captured on July 18, at just 36.9 million miles from Earth, near its July 27 opposition.

With surface temperatures as low as minus 68C, it would not exist as a liquid under normal conditions. These were hypothesized to be formed by flow of briny liquid water on Mars.

Robinson explained that scientists used orbiting radar technology to scan below the Martian surface. "This is something that is to us the telltale sign of the presence of water".

Professor Roberto Orosei, from the University of Bologna, wrote in the journal Science: "Anomalously bright subsurface reflections are evident within a well-defined 20-kilometre-wide zone. which is surrounded by much less reflective areas". It showed that this bright feature has high relative dielectric permittivity ( 15), matching that of water -bearing materials. These features were interpreted as due to the propagation of the radar signals through a very cold layer of pure water ice having negligible attenuation. The group will also have meteorite samples from Mars and the moon for people to touch.

Apple shares soar in after-hours trade as earnings beat expectations
Apple sold 41.3 million iPhones in the quarter that ended June 30, just shy of the 42 million figure anticipated by analysts. There are lots of things to expect from Apple's upcoming quarterly earnings to stay tuned for the latest.

Two of the biggest questions now are how extensive this subsurface water system is, and whether it contains the organic matter necessary to support life. This happens Friday, and the Earth won't pass between the sun and Mars until September 16.

Even then, with the planets at their closest, the journey will still take about seven months. In the planet's two polar regions, there are large quantities of solid water, or ice.

Testifying at the hearing, Chris Carberry, chief executive of Explore Mars, said global and private partnerships could help the United States make it more affordable to reach Mars.

That's because most of this radiation comes from cosmic rays, and scientists still haven't come up with a reliable way to shield astronauts from their effects when they leave Earth's atmosphere.
