I suggest that Mars is a different kind of planet. The closet body it can be compared to is an ice moon like Europa. But Mars is different, Mars could have a crust of a soil / ice mixture with dust on top. The deeper you go the greater the percentage of ice becomes. Until it is almost pure ice and under the ice is water.

What if Mars never had lakes or rivers on the surface. The evidence of rivers, lakes and maybe even oceans come from episodes of water being released from a pressurized underground system. Huge amounts of water could have been released by this underground system.

What if the water is liquid and under pressure near the center of Mars. Could the same forces that play at the Earth's core keep Mars core liquid and under pressure? Could Mars have a liquid core that has always been there?

What if Mars has had a liquid core as long as the Earth has had an iron core? Life would have had just as much time on Mars as it did on Earth to spring forth and evolve.

What if I told you that Earth has far more water in the form of rock than it does in the oceans?
It occurs in the form of ringwoodite.
en.wikipedia.org...



Combined with evidence of its occurrence deep in the Earth's mantle, this suggests that there is from one to three times the world ocean's equivalent of water in the mantle transition zone from 410 to 660 km deep.

Good point.

That water is really locked-up good too.

The density of Europa is one reason for theorizing a planetary ocean beneath the ice (not to mention the plumes and stuff).


How does the density of Mars compare?

Better yet explain what is left of a magnetic feild .
A spinning iron core surrounded by liquid rock under great pressure is how that works .

Mars probably has massive amounts of underground water but is not made from the stuff . PS neither are any moons they all have rock cores as far as we know .

Even comets are maybe at most 1/3 water the rest gases and rock mixed in .

Well there is life on Mars and their asses are going to be able to go back home and their issues are solved because of me. But there are some Reptilians that really really really have a big ego problem they need to simmer tf down.

Mars is not very dense compared to Earth. Europa is dense because it may be mostly liquid water. The soil / ice mixture of Mars could be loosely packed with air pockets. I am not suggesting that all of Mars is liquid water, just the core. This could account for the low density.

That is all true, but there could be planets with water cores. No one knows for sure what is at any planets core, not even Earth's.

The proof that Mars had a strong magnetic field at one time is very thin and very debatable. Magnetic fields can be caused by other things also.
