A whole system of salt lakes found on Mars
The network has information about the discovery by an international team of scientists of a whole system of salt lakes on Mars. The study is based on data from the MARSIS radar, which studies the atmosphere and surface of the Red Planet.
So, experts say that the object previously discovered under a glacier at the south pole of Mars is nothing more than a lake with liquid water. At the same time, the authors of the discovery believe that the water in the planet's sub-ice lakes remains liquid at extremely low temperatures due to the high content of dissolved salts in it.
It is also worth noting that the researchers also spotted several other small lakes in the same area referred to in their recent work. In their opinion, under the glaciers of Mars, there is a whole network of reservoirs.
