Beyond Water

Beyond Water
Beyond Water The High Resolution Science Experiment on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has detected mysterious features that may be our first evidence of liquid water on Mars. This view, a combination of orbital imagery and 3-D modeling, shows a slope as it would look from a helicopter inside Newton crater. “The best explanation for these observations so far is the flow of briny water,” said Alfred McEwen of the University of Arizona. The study of craters, such as Newton and the much-anticipated Gale, brings us ever closer to knowing if life ever graced the Red Planet.
