The red planet was covered with oases billions of years ago
NASA scientists believe that Mars probably existed oases of liquid water about 3.5 billion years ago. This is evidenced by the remains of ponds scattered around the pool with a width of 160 miles, called the Gale crater. Oases have been found by the Mars Curiosity Rover, which discovered a mineral salt mixed with the sediment in the rock.

Currently, Curiosity explores each layer of the Gale crater and mount sharp to uncover the history of Mars, which, according to the scientists, gradually turned from the underwater landscape with deep lakes in the oasis a number of shallow ponds in the global water evaporation due to climate change on the red planet. Moreover, the soil sampling showed that these lakes in the past were full of fresh water.
About this could be the landscape of Mars 3.5 billion years ago
“We went to Gale crater because it has preserved a unique “record” the changes of Mars. However, the question remains, is this enough time to complete evaporation of water for the formation of any life on this planet,” said said William Rapin from the California Institute of technology.
