The Story of Water on Mars
Mars is currently a hyperarid, cold desert, but since the 1970s, we have seen evidence for past liquid water. Today, we are in a golden era of Mars exploration – a combination of satellites, landers, and rovers provide us with a plethora of evidence for both past and present water on Mars. This talk will discuss some of that evidence and present the case that rivers, lakes, and seas covered the Red Planet billions of years ago.
