Since then, MARSIS has been studying Mars with radar signals to learn more about the planet's interior structure and composition.

The strong radar echoes in 2007 wound up being the result of a layer of icy carbon dioxide on the surface of Mars rather than liquid water beneath.

The pool could also be more mud than water, but that could still be a habitable environment, Horgan says. »
