In the desperateÂ attempts to find a way to have life on Mars, Italian scientistsÂ have found something rather substantial in their efforts. They found something like resembles a large body of water seemingly like a lake. It rests one mile underneath the surface of Mars.
It’s still up in the air with the specialists, but if this is really what they think it is, this find would be the biggest since they began to explore Mars.

If this really is a body of water under the surface, it would be a huge find. This would mean that water is possible to stay on the red planet.
Previously, scientists have found old water channels and rivers on the surface, but that doesn’t really tell us anything of the climate now.
This was all possible thanks to new and updated technologies. The scientists have been using radars in order to get readings of the planet.
A 12-mile-wide body of water lies beneath a Mars ice cap, raising the tantalizing possibility this is where on Mars life might have existed – or persisted. https://t.co/aVCiatXTvV

Outside sources are now examining the evidence and are looking into it on their own. Hopefully, this leads to some new discoveries! If water isÂ found on Mars, there’s a high chance that humans could have an easier time exploring.
This is an exciting chapter for our Mars investigations! Maybe getting to Mars will be sooner than we think.
