To make the discovery assisted the special radar.
Scientists space Agency NASA has found on Mars a giant sea. That Mars might have had water, scientists stated long ago. Now they have another proof of this theory, writes lenta.ua.
Experts have discovered on a distant planet sea. It is located in the Western part of the plains of Utopia at a considerable depth. Approximately 80% of it consists of ice, rest gases and sand. The thickness of the layer can reach 170 meters. The total reservoir of frozen water is about 14 000 cubic metres.
It should be noted that the results of the earlier research confirm that Mars has huge deposits of water ice, which has played an important role in the evolution of the planet. Satellite images and other information indicate that this object could be liquid water. It is possible that there was a river network and even had a flood. In any case, this assumption confirms the structure found on Mars rocks and minerals. The available analyses indicate that they could be formed only in liquid water.
