The planet we always know as a dry and dusty planet, which always reminds us of a desertMars, updated this impression with the findings obtained in 2018. A lake filled with water under the surface of Mars, in other words, in studies from Earth.detected to be an underground pool. With a new finding, things started to get interesting.
Detected by radar signals sent from Earththe pool is not alone appeared last year. Recently, surprising information has emerged about this network of lakes.Some of the lakes were in regions that were too cold to contain water in liquid form.
The temperature of the lakes is not the kind to contain liquids:
After the underground lake found in 2018, it was discovered last year that there are many lakes close to each other. These lakes are detected by signals sent from Earth, they appeared on radar as bright regions. A recent review revealed that these bright areas, which are said to contain liquid, are in areas that are too cold to contain liquid.With dozens of new lakes, according to the new study, the temperature of the region where some lakes are located is so below freezingeven salt water with a lower freezing point needs to freeze.
NASA’sfrom jet labJeffrey Plaut, after finding plenty of lakes, made the following statements: “We are not sure whether these signals point to liquid water, but we see that these lakes are much more common than the initial study suggested. Either water is pretty common under Mars’ south pole, or these signals mean something else. ”
Some materials reflect sent radar signals much better than others. Water in liquid form is one of them. The idea that there may be anything other than liquid water here is not dismissed, but experts think water is the best guess for now. The researchers concluded that the fact that the water does not freeze despite the cold region may be present in the region.from geothermal heat flow says it might be due.
