Mars was covered by a 300-meter-deep ocean 4.5 billion years ago

When Mars was a young planet, it was bombarded by ice asteroids delivering water and organic molecules necessary for life to emerge. This means...

Early crust on Mars is more complex than thought

Early crust on Mars may be more complex than previously thought—and it may even be similar to our own planet’s original crust. The Martian surface...

Scientists use deep planetary scan to confirm Martian core?

Scientists from The Australian National University (ANU) have developed a new method to scan the deep interior of planets in our solar system to...

Two major meteorite impacts reveal new insights about Martian crust

Following two large meteorite impacts on Mars, near-surface seismic waves have been recorded for the first time on a planet other than Earth. The...

Mars shows signs of life and youth

Until now, Mars has been generally considered a geologically dead planet. An international team of researchers led by ETH Zurich now reports that seismic...
