The Ancient Oceans of Mars

Since I expanded the blog from showcasing my fantasy novel, The Ligan of the Disomus, and have posted other stories including some science fiction, I guess I might as well start sharing some science background material in addition to the historical (and prehistorical) stuff I normally post.

One of my favorite works of science fiction is Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars trilogy.  So, when I read that a study of delta formations on Mars had turned up an ancient shoreline that not only corresponded with previously identified shoreline formations, but also would indicate that this ancient ocean covered one-third of the Martian surface, I knew I had to share it.

Read about it at USA Today, FOX News, or TG Daily.
