Underground lake found on Mars, raising possibility of life

What Researchers believe to be a lake sits under the planet’s south polar ice cap, and is about 20km across.

Previous research found possible signs of intermittent liquid water flowing on the Martian surface, but this is the first sign of a persistent body of water on the planet in the present day.

Lake beds like those explored by Nasa’s Curiosity rover show water was present on the surface of Mars in the past. However, the planet’s climate has since cooled due to its thin atmosphere, leaving most of its water locked up in ice.
