Mars’ water may have come from asteroid impacts

Asteroids bombarding Mars nearly 4.5 billion years ago may have delivered enough water to create a global ocean 1,000 feet (300 meters) deep.

Scientists based this conclusion on analysis of 31 meteorites from Mars that have been discovered on Earth. The tantalizing results could point to a hidden reservoir of water still present on the Red Planet today. In addition, the work may have implications for understanding not only the early history of the Red Planet, but also Earth’s own past.
