Mars Volcanoes: Still Alive After All These Years? Space.com

Mars may be alive with active volcanoes, bolstering the prospect that life is firmly rooted on the red planet. New data from instruments aboard the Mars Global Surveyor show evidence for ongoing volcanic activity, with geological features tied to recent floods. Both these volcanic and hydrologic events are young, and could perhaps still occur on Mars in the future. This new evidence was presented late last week during the Geological Society of America’s (GSA) annual meeting, held in Boston, Massachusetts.
