  • Mars once had salt lakes that went through wet and dry phases similar to those on the Earth.
  • The salt ponds eventually formed during these drying periods.
  • The study also noted the types of chemical elements present in the liquid water that was present at the red planet’s surface at the time, and the type of environmental changes any potential life forms on Mars may have had to cope with, had they existed.
