Mars mystery SOLVED: Nasa confirms bizarre 'dark finger' marks on the red planet ARE signs of water flowing beneath the surface of the planet that once had seas bigger than the Arctic Ocean

Nasa confirms Mars' bizarre 'dark finger' marks ARE signs of liquid water

The findings are published in the journal Nature Geoscience and are being discussed at a Nasa press conference at James Webb Auditorium in Nasa Headquarters, Washington. The marks were spotted 'accidentally' in 2011 in Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter images and were later found to lengthen and darken on rocky slopes from late spring to early autumn. By studying infrared wavelengths from four separate locations where these flows appear (Hale crater pictured left and the Coprates Chasma crater pictured right), the researchers believe they are likely made by flowing water due to the presence of hydrated salts. This is the first evidence of its kind to be found on another planet and could suggest there is an ocean beneath Mars' icy desert surface (planet pictured inset). It is also the first step in confirming life can exist on the alien world.
