  3. Saltwater discovered in inhospitable Antarctic region hints at possibility of life on MarsRead the original story

    Wednesday Apr 29 | Newkerala.com

    Researchers have recently found evidence of salty groundwater in Antarctica's Dry Valleys, which provided strong support for the idea that Mars, an environment that resembles Antarctic, may have similar aquifers beneath its surface that could support microscopic life. Using a novel, helicopter-borne sensor to penetrate below the surface of large swathes of terrain, a team of researchers supported by the National Science Foundation, or NSF, has gathered compelling evidence that beneath the Antarctica ice-free McMurdo Dry Valleys lays a salty aquifer that might support previously unknown microbial ecosystems and retain evidence of ancient climate change.
