Mars And Pluto Have Some Common Traits With Earth
Home away from home: Scientists have discovered that Mars used to have long-lasting lakes and Pluto has blue skies.By Bell Johnson | October 8, 2015
It continues to be a good time for space news. New data from NASA probes has pinpointed some ways that the planets in our solar system are similar to Earth.
Starting off closer to home, NASA's Curiosity rover has found that ancient Mars had long-lasting lakes.
We already knew about water on Mars, but according to data released in a new study, the Gale crater held a series of freshwater lakes that would repeatedly die out before refilling. But they could have been around for up to 10,000 years, which is just enough time to possibly sustain life.
