Huge seas 'once existed on Mars'

Postby DarkUFO on Wed Jun 09, 2010 12:42 pm

Further evidence has been found to support the idea that vast oceans once existed on the surface of Mars.

Geological mapping has revealed sedimentary deposits indicative of a large ocean over 4 billion years ago in an area of Mars called Hellas Planitia. The question remains however - was there ever anything living in it ?

The researchers say their data support a lake between 4. 5 and 3. 5 billion years ago. Some scientists believe that conditions on Mars were more favourable for the evolution of life at this time than they were on Earth.
