NASA’s Opportunity begins frantic search after signs of water discovered on Mars

The search is on on Mars.

NASA’s Opportunity rover received a new mission after the release of a new study noting definitive signs of clay minerals, which form under wet, non-acidic conditions that can be favorable for life.

A newly released study has unearthed evidence that images captured by European and NASA orbiters suggests Martian environments with abundant liquid water on the surface existed only during short episodes.
