Quotes

However, Nasa investigated the image and found it was simply a trick of the light. "One possibility is that the light is the glint from a rock surface reflecting the sun" a Nasa spokesperson told MailOnline
"Our work has nudged me towards thinking that the conditions were mostly very cold and very dry even on early Mars - similar to (Earth's) Antarctic Dry Valleys today" lead author Dr Edwin Kite told BBC News
James Head, from Brown University in Rhode Island, said: "This is an excellent paper. It bolsters previous studies that suggest early Mars was icy."
...The size of meteors that manage to penetrate a planet's atmosphere and make craters is indicative of that planet's atmosphere, write the authors, "because thinner atmospheres permit smaller objects to reach the surface at high velocities and form craters"
