Scientists have discovered the reasons for the disappearance of water on Mars.
Scientists have long speculated that water on Mars disappeared gradually, turning the Planet into an arid.
But now, researchers from the University of Colorado argue that this theory is incorrect.
American scientists believe that Mars was a more rapid process that transformed the water into hydrogen. According to the conducted analysis, experts have determined that the molecules of water on the red Planet was located much higher than on Earth and thus could avoid the “cold traps”, which would attract them closer to the surface.
Under the action of ultraviolet light, the water splits into hydrogen and oxygen, the first of which is not inuenced by the gravitational force of Mars. Research staff noted that they needed to conduct additional research to find out what was happening on the red Planet.
In the case of confirmation of his theory, scientists can predict about the processes on Earth that will occur in the future.
