NASA’s Curiosity Rover Finds Evidence of Rivers on Mars

NASA’s Curiosity rover has unearthed new evidence of rivers on Mars.

Scientists said Mars was home to multiple river systems that spanned over the entire Red Planet.

The study indicates that craters on the Martian planet were once active rivers. 

The Planet Had Rivers

The study’s lead author, Benjamin Cardenas, said the planet was not red as we see it today, a barren and unlivable place in the solar system that was once home to thriving river systems.

Scientists dwelled on the erosion procedures that have shaped the Martian surface for billions of years.

The researchers also unveiled a new method of interpretation of the Martian surface, linking them to eroded river bodies.

Ancient Life On Mars?

Scientists said the discovery could uncover past life on the planet.

Cardenas said the scientific community now agrees that the Red Planet was home to far more rivers than we previously anticipated. 

The research was published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
