New Images Show Signs of Climate Change on Mars Brown University

New images from NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft show signs of recent climate change on the “Red Planet” dating back about 100,000 years instead of millions or billions, American scientists said on Wednesday. John Mustard and geologists at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, have identified and mapped a unique, young terrain resembling cemented ice that suggests there are shallow ice reserves below the surface. High-resolution images from Surveyor show the terrain is breaking down, indicating climate change and perhaps modern Martian ice ages.
