The discovery of bright deposits on Mars, announced on 7 December 2006 by NASA, could indicate that liquid water has recently flowed on a few locations on the planet.
The newly discovered deposits were identified by comparing different images of the same area taken by NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor (MOC camera), over a period of few years. The images suggest that water may have flowed there sometime within the past seven years.
