New research has shown that there was liquid water on Mars as recently as 200,000 years ago. The results have been published in the international scientific journal Icarus.

"We have discovered a very young crater in the southern mid-latitudes of Mars that shows evidence of liquid water in Mars' recent past" says Andreas Johnsson at the University of Gothenburg.

The southern hemisphere of Mars is home to a crater that contains very well-preserved gullies and debris flow deposits. The geomorphological attributes of these landforms provide evidence that they were formed by the action of liquid water in geologically recent time.
