According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, the researchers came to this conclusion after they analyzed the mineral composition of the meteorite coming from Mars Known in the scientific community as “NWA 7533”, since it was found in 2012.

The analysis revealed traces of the process Oxidation Which may have occurred in conjunction with the formation of the water.

This meteorite, which weighs 84 grams, fell to the northwest of the African continent, after a celestial rock was destroyed upon entering Atmosphere للأرض.

And it was Astronomy scientists They are aware that water existed on Mars, but their time estimate was that it was likely 3.7 billion years ago.

But analysis Meteorite The new and the monitoring of its mineral composition, made researchers reconsider, because the water was present 700 thousand years before the date that we were considering.

And if there was no water on Mars before this new date determined by scientists, it is possible that the liquid appeared as a result of the interactions that accompanied the formation of the planet.

This discovery of water can serve to theories of the existence of life outside Planet earth.

In 2013, scientists estimated the age of the meteorite that fell from Mars at 4.4 million years, to be the oldest meteorite from The red planet Absolutely.

Many may wonder about the way astronomers know that a particular meteorite dates back to Mars.

And specialist researchers explain that they are doing this, thanks to a comparison with samples brought from Mars by a US space mission in the 1970s.

And the US mission, at that time, landed advanced devices on the surface of Mars in order to bring samples for the space study on Earth to reveal more about the red planet.
