Millions of years ago, NASA researchers believe Mars was “warmer and wetter,” similar to Earth.

Although Mars today is “a very dry planet […] There is a clue [da existência] of ancient lakes and streams “and that it would have had a shallow northern ocean,” scientist Becky McCauley Wrench explains in a video published by NASA.

In the video, there are some pictures that Recreate the look that the Red Planet would have had, with water at that time.

However, Earth developed tectonic layers and later life itself while on Mars “Geological activity has decreased” And the loss of water, which explains the difference between the two planets.

According to Reinsch, the reason it is “a great thing to study Mars” is the opportunity to better understand the past and future of the Red Planet, as well as Earth and The evolution of the planets in our solar system and “afterwards”.
