Mysterious ‘ice ladders’ seen on Mars: Does this confirm the presence of water on the red planet?

Ice ladders have been discovered on Mars. Such images have been released before, but it is now known that water once existed on Mars. Scientists discovered this after studying the ice ladders discovered on Mars. Transverse Aeolin Ridges are the scientific name for these ladders (TAR). It’s basically ice frozen on top of ancient dust flying around Mars.

Scientists from the University of Arizona conducted the study. They mentioned seeing these ice ladders in Solis Planum. It is located near Noctis Labryinthus, which is in the southern hemisphere of Mars. Solis Planum, Mars’ largest basin, is located southeast of Valles Marineris.

TAR has sparked the interest of many scientists over the years. This image was discovered by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. A clear view of these ice ladders was revealed using the HiRISE camera installed in the orbiter. However, how TAR is formed is not known.

When scientists at the University of Arizona examined these images closely, they found that they depicted ancient figures. Which can be seen all over the planet Mars. They continue to build and deteriorate, but they leave a mark. Like a channel network. Scientists believe that in ancient times these figures were formed by the flow of water or lava.

Scientists continue to investigate this 2015 photo. To confirm the presence of water on Mars. Water is necessary for the formation of life. There is some dispute as to whether water ever flowed on Mars or whether a microbe is present in the atmosphere. Because even a small amount of moisture and less water are beneficial for micro life. Just a few days ago, NASA’s Perseverance rover received word that organic objects had been discovered among the rocks. The information extracted from those stones is studied.
