Clay-bearing sediments, according to scientists who have been looking at images taken by the space agency's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, can be observed in them.

The photographs depict a particular region of Mars called Margaritifer Terra, which is old and covered in numerous craters

Previously, NASA provided a picture of what it thinks was the planet's old pond.

It would support hypotheses that the Red Planet once supported water if clay were to be found there.

According to a study that appeared in the journal Icarus, water may have existed in Margaritifer Terra's Ladon basin region from around 3.8 billion years ago until about 2.5 billion years ago.

Clays form and remain stable in neutral pH conditions where water persists for an extended period of time, which minimises evaporation to form other minerals like sulphates

according to Catherine Weitz, a senior scientist at the Planetary Science Institute in Arizona.

According to astrologer undefined, Mercury Retrograde's altered energy may cause you to reevaluate your plans for the future.
