According to a recent study by NASA, Mars may have liquid water close to its surface. This has raised the chances of finding life at the red planet. Researchers have long known that there was water in the form of ice on Mars. Now new research on data from Nasa’s Curiosity shows that it is possible that there is liquid water close to the surface of Mars. The explanation is that the substance perchlorate has been found in the soil, which lowers the freezing point so the water does not freeze into ice, but is liquid and present in very salty salt water – brine.
