Astrologers have calculated that cold rings contain about 150 billion cubic meters of frozen water. This number would be enough to cover the entire planet even layer with a thickness of 1.1 m. the Ice does not evaporate due to the fact that he is under a layer of rocks.
Rings encircle Mars in the Northern and southern hemisphere and are located at latitudes who on Earth corresponds to the location of Denmark. Despite the fact that they were open for a long time, scientists for a long time couldn't figure out their composition.
On the different versions of the belt could be frozen water, frozen dioxide Ulead CO2 or simply compacted rocks. But analysis of the data acquired from the satellite over the past decade made it clear that the Martian belts are composed of ice. "The Martian ice play the role of the water reservoir of the planet," ABC Science quoted nannu Carlson, the Institute of Copenhagen.
It has been estimated that cold rings contain about 150 billion cubic meters of frozen water. It should be noted that this number of ice would be enough to cover the entire planet even layer thickness of 1.1 m. researchers have suggested that the ice does not evaporate because is under a thick layer of dust, also rocks.
As wrote earlier Days.<url>, scientists from the American space Agency NASA were collected new evidence of life on Mars. The Curiosity Rover has detected in samples of soil of the planet of long-chain fat molecules, which are considered an essential component of cell membranes certainly all well-known to mankind, life forms, including microbes.
