The newest images of Mars show that flowing water, large glaciers and active volcanoes have existed on the planet in recent geologic times. Scientists
state that Mars has been geologically active in the past few millions of years. Together, this research provides further reason to search Mars for
signs of life, scientist state.
New images of Mars reveal that flowing water, large glaciers and active volcanoes have scoured the planet in recent geologic times.

We are getting new information about Mars daily and this is truly exciting. The information about active volcanoes on Mars is new to me though. Any
information that will provide further reason to search for Mars for life is good information.
Remember, where there is water, there could be life.
