(ORDO NEWS) — The Perseveranse rover discovered volcanic rocks on Mars frozen as a result of contact with water. Their study will reveal the history of the planet’s interior.
According to university professor David Schuster, this discovery was a “great gift” because the rover was able to obtain the first “evidence of the interaction of volcanic rocks on Mars with water.”
“Their study will be extremely interesting for obtaining estimates of whether the conditions for the origin and existence of life existed on the planet,” he added.
Schuster also noted that the rover found deposits of volcanic rocks frozen from contact with water in different regions of the Martian crater Jezero, which presumably represents the basin of an ancient dry lake.
