New findings from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars.

Using an imaging spectrometer on MRO, researchers detected signatures of hydrated minerals on slopes where mysterious streaks are seen on the Red Planet. These darkish streaks appear to ebb and flow over time. They darken and appear to flow down steep slopes during warm seasons, and then fade in cooler seasons. They appear in several locations on Mars when temperatures are above minus 10 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 23 Celsius), and disappear at colder times.



 These downhill flows, known as recurring slope lineae (RSL), often have been described as possibly related to liquid water. The new findings of hydrated salts on the slopes point to what that relationship may be to these dark features. The hydrated salts would lower the freezing point of a liquid brine, just as salt on roads here on Earth causes ice and snow to melt more rapidly. Scientists say it’s likely a shallow subsurface flow, with enough water wicking to the surface to explain the darkening.



The dark, narrow streaks flowing downhill on Mars at sites such as this portion of Horowitz Crater are inferred to be formed by seasonal flow of water on modern-day Mars. The streaks are roughly the length of a football field. These dark features on the slopes are called "recurring slope lineae" or RSL. Planetary scientists using observations with the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer on the same orbiter detected hydrated salts on these slopes at Horowitz Crater, corroborating the hypothesis that the streaks are formed by briny liquid water.

So if there's water up there, it's safe to say that there's oxygen there...which means that fire can exist on Mars. Therefore, boiling water can be possible in Mars.....

Who's trying to take a trip to Mars with some Arm and Hammer and Fishscale and start flooding Mars with that hard?

Mars landing will be our generation's Moon Landing

And I CANNOT wait.

Check out on instagram @4biddenknowledge....he's been posting this and other pictures of structures on Mars taken by nasa and others space agencies...we've been to Mars and others have been there long before us

He's a conspiracy theorist I don't agree with everything but his pics from the other page hold weight even has links to the nasa website where pics come from...satellites take hundreds of pics dude goes through them and finds some strange stuff take it for what it is could be rocks I guess

if any sort of intelligent extraterrestrial lifeforms wanted (keyword) us to know of their existence, we would know by now...

Maybe they've been trying to tell us who they are with crop-circles and the Nazca Lines, or perhaps they're outer dimensional. Possibilities can be beyond our comprehension.
