New Discovery Challenges What We Know About Water On Mars

If you visited Mars today, you'd find a dry, inhospitable desert.

 But billions of years ago, Mars was very different, and may even have looked a lot like Earth

Today, there is very little water on Mars

Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences looked at data from the rover's microimaging camera and two spectrometers

They also found material called duricrust in layers, which forms when there is water present

Previously, the assumption had been that water was present on Mars up until around three billion years ago

The research using data from the Zhurong rover seems to support the concept of water being present
