Putative "recent" lakes on Mars

Posted by Ryan Anderson

I have a new article up at Universe Today about the discovery of possible lakes on Mars as recently as 3 billion years ago. I’m skeptical of the conclusion because there are a lot of uncertainties in crater age-dating on Mars, and the whole argument hangs on the discovery of small channels between pits that are supposedly due to flowing water, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

Stay tuned, I have more Universe Today articles on the way this week!
