An underground lake has been found beneath the planet of mars according to latest discovery by scientist. The underground lake was detected by scientist using an instrument orbiting a spacecraft. This discocery has increasingly raised the possibilty of having the existence of living organism on mars.
The scientist where able to detect the reservoir which has a distance of 12 miles (20 Km) in diameter.
According to the research that was carried out, it could take several years to know if a living organism exist in the lake. Mars is the only planet apart from our own planet Earth that has proven to have some resemblance of living organism existing.
The researchers were able to detect the lake with the aid of data’s that where collected from May 2012 to December 2015 by an instrument aboard the European Space Agency’s Mars Express spacecraft that transmits radar pulses, which penetrate the Martian surface and ice caps. “The reserch took the researchers long years to gather data analysis and took lots of efforts to find a better way to be sure that all there observations where liquid water according Enrico Flamini who is the chief scientist at the Italian Space Agency during the research. The lake found on mars is like a resemblance of lakes on earth, predictions have been made that the lake may inhabit living organisms. Maybe a future research can make it clear. (Source: Reuters)
