A very dark spot on Mars could be an entrance to a deep hole or


Hi Everyone!

Planetary scientists from the U.S. and Canada (including a team
from Toronto's York University) that have experiments aboard
Phoenix, the next Mars lander scheduled to be launched in less
than two months, are very encouraged by this discovery of deep
vertical cave openings.

The goal of this latest Mars mission is to "follow the water"
which is believed to exist just below the surface of the Red
Planet. Since sink holes found on Earth are created through
erosion by water flowing just beneath the ground, this discovery
is further evidence that Phoenix will locate the vast amounts of
missing water that once filled the large basins and now dry lake
beds on Mars.

Sink holes on Mars would make ideal sites for future manned
settlements of Mars since they offer protection from the harse
local conditions - but they may be already occupied by other
creatures that are indigenous or got there before us to the
fourth planet in our solar system from the Sun.
