NASA’s Curiosity Rover Makes Ancient Discovery On Mars

NASA’s Curiosity rover may have just discovered an ancient oasis on Mars.

Rocks enriched in mineral salts provide evidence that ponds may have once dotted the 100-mile-wide Gale Crater.

Researchers believe briny pools likely saw repeated episodes of flooding and drying, leaving behind billion-year-old clues.

The deposits indicate climate variances as the Martian environment transitioned from a wet habitat to a freezing desert.

5,000-Year-Old Ice Caps Are Completely Gone

New satellite images from NASA show that Canada's St. Patrick Bay ice caps have completely disappeared. Researcher Mark Serreze said; "I can't say I was terribly surprised because we knew they were going, but it has happened really fast". In 2017 Serreze estimated the ice caps would be gone within five years. The dwindling ice caps were located on the Hazen Plateau of northeastern Ellesmere Island in Nunavut.
