How do we know if there was ever life on Mars? Fossils which have helped trace an almost continuous source of life. Rocks are formed in many different conditions such as volcanism, ancient mud (which would indicate water) , ancient tar and ancient mudslides.
“Tomorrow you will be resuming your search for life, this mission to Mars will be another attempt to find evidence of ancient mud or mudslides which could take imprints of animals.”
We have also been looking into the different types of volcanos. These are mainly classified by the type of lava produced; Strato (composite), Shield, Cinder Cone or Lava Dome. Each has very unique characteristics.
