Mars in the past had flooded lakes and led to the formation of canyons, suggesting a study by scientists at the University of America in Texas.
By studying the geological formations of the planet from satellite images, experts have come to the conclusion that hundreds of lakes on Mars surface are filled once full of water, forming lakes and seas.
According to scientists at the University of Texas, sometimes the lakes, some as large as the Caspian Sea, considered the largest lake in the world, had so much water that flooded, causing flooding. In a few weeks, it's carved & # 39; in the water of the rocks, creating a porridge.
In the study, published in the Geology magazine, the authors estimate that more than 200 creatures (paleolagots) will be punctuated by canyons dozens to hundreds of kilometers long and several kilometers wide.
Of all, the researchers looked at 24 ancient lakes and their canyons. A type of paleolagios, and crater Jezero, is the location chosen for landing a new robotic vehicle that will look for life traces in the past on Mars. NASA's mission agency agency's mission has scheduled to launch in the summer of 2020.
Unlike Earth, Mars does not have tectonic plates, which, according to scientists, said cataclysms such as floods or asteroids of conflict have created permanent changes in the surface to the surface.
