Water on Mars – how our researchers found the traces

The issue of life on Mars has long fascinated humanity. Researchers at Luleå University of Technology made the amazing findings of traces of water on Mars. Much indicates that there may be, or has been, life on the red planet. And the exploration continues – the future is closer than we think.

Research confirmed by NASA's findings

"The new research findings and our previous results are complementary and reinforce each other at the same time", says Javier Martin-Torres, professor of atmospheric science at Luleå University of Technology.

Water cycle on Mars

Brines that evaporates during the night proves that there is a water cycle on Mars. The spectacular findings are published in Nature Geoscience and Javier Martín-Torres, professor of Atmospheric Science at Luleå University, is the lead author of the article.
