Just what is Mars made of? A spacecraft is sending that information to NASA and its findings reveal that ancient Mars had conditions could have supported life.
FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports:
When NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover drilled into Martian soil, it found evidence that Mars had plenty of the most important thing we humans are supposed get plenty of:
(John Grotzinger, NASA) "We have found a habitable environment that is so benign and supportive of life, that probably if this water was around, and you had been on the planet, you would have been able to drink it."
That water existed on ancient Mars. And while the soil revealed plenty of other needs, like oxygen and nitrogen, there's no sign that life ever did exist on the Red Planet.
