Photos revealed today, taken by the Mars Global Surveyor, show signs that the climate on Mars has changed very recently and that more liquid water may lie underground than we thought. According to Brown University professor John Mustard after spending months studying the photos, 15,000 cubic miles of water may lie under the surface. That's enough to cover the entire planet in water knee high. This is great news for terraformers because all that water could be easily tapped and used to support a future human colony. Also, NASA says that Mars may have experienced a change in climate only 100,000 years ago, indicated by signs of frozen water on the surface. The red planet may not be dead afterall... it could still be alive and well.
