    Mars colonizers, get ready: water found on the red planet, NASA intelligence confirmed

    The recent discovery of NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has confirmed that water on the red planet was relatively recent.

    Water found on Mars – NASA intelligence confirmed, this is good news for future Martian expeditions

    Water is too heavy to deliver in large quantities during a rocket flight: so astronauts will have to find a source of water on Mars. And it seems that such searches may well be successful, since NASA MRO has collected evidence that Mars has had water recently.

    This discovery could be a valuable resource for future crewed expeditions to Mars, which will require huge volumes of water. Perhaps the astronauts will need the help of an Indian prodigy who will collect data directly from space satellites.

    The news that there was water on Mars much earlier than scientists thought is great. Insofar as water is required for crewed missions both as a source of drinking water for astronauts, and as rocket fuel for launching from the surface of the planet.

    Perhaps the water on Mars appeared due to the rise of groundwater or the melting of subsurface ice. This was established using shortwave infrared spectrum data, obtained by the Zhurong rover at the site of his landing on the Martian plain Utopia (Utopia Planitia).

    China National Space Administration (CNSA) extended its mission of cooperation with NASA last August, allowing the rover to explore the coastal zone of Utopia Planitia. It is a vast plain in the largest recognized space “pool” of the solar system.

    Zhurong is the sixth rover to reach Mars, standing six feet tall and weighing about 530 pounds. The rover traveled about 1.24 km and explored various surfaces in over 350 Martian sols (days).

    The presence of water on Mars and easy access to it would be great news for people who want to visit the fourth planet from the Sun i.e. Mars by 2030as SpaceX president Gwynne Shotwell predicts.
