Mars once had salt lakes that went through wet and dry phases similar to those on Earth, according to a study published in the journal Nature Geoscience.

This indicates that the red planet’s climate ‘dried out’ a long time. According to the researchers, over 3 billion years ago, the lake that was present in Gale Crater — a rocky basin that is being explored with NASA’s Curiosity rover since 2012 — underwent a drying episode possibly linked to the global drying of Mars.

According to the researchers, including those from Texas A&M University in the US, liquid water on Mars may have become unsustainable and evaporated as the planet’s atmosphere and the pressure of the surface became thinner.
