There are two sites that have recently entered the scientific spotlight, bearing the beautiful Latin names Oxia Planum and Mawrth Vallis. They are both associated with hard evidence of the Red Planet’s ancient water reserves, which, if ultimately proved, will directly point to the type of life that possibly thrived there.
