Find three more lakes on Mars. Two years ago, researchers discovered a large lake beneath the ice sheet of the Red Planet. This time they found three more lakes. That’s according to a study published in the journal Nature Astronomy on Monday.
According to the study, a saltwater lake was found on Mars two years ago. This time three more lakes were found. “We have found that big lake,” said Elena Pettinelli, a planetary scientist at the University of Rome. But at the same time, I found three more lakes near it. It’s a complex system. ”
According to the researchers, the four reservoirs are spread over 75,000 square kilometers. That is one-fifth of the size of Germany. The big lake is located across 30 kilometers. He is surrounded by the other three lakes. Each is a few kilometers wide.
After the discovery of these underground reservoirs, research on Mars is expected to take a new turn. The question that has been heard for a long time has also resurfaced. So can life be found on Mars? Scientists say it’s hard to say for sure right now. However, despite the existence of water, the amount of salt in it is considered to be unfavorable for life.
There is also controversy over the discovered reservoir. Many scientists and researchers have been skeptical since the first large lake was discovered in 2016. According to them, it is doubtful whether the discovered place is a reservoir or not. They were skeptical of what could be a sufficient source of heat to turn ice into water. According to the new research paper, although there is a lot of information in support of it since the discovery of 2016, many researchers and scientists are not sure that there is water in the discovered area.
