Geologists have discovered 1.2-billion-year-old groundwater about 3 km below surface in Moab Khotsong, a gold- and uranium-producing mine in South Africa. This ancient groundwater is enriched in the highest concentrations of radiogenic products yet discovered in fluid. The discovery have implications beyond Earth, where on rocky planets such as Mars, subsurface water may persist on long […] The post 1.2-Billion-Year-Old Groundwater System Found in South African Mine appeared first on Sci.News: Breaking Science News ..read more

Using neutron and X-ray tomography, a team of planetary researchers from Lund University and elsewhere examined a section of Miller Range (MIL) 03346, a nakhlite meteorite from Miller Range in Antarctica. Nakhlites are a group of igneous Martian meteorites that are rich in minerals called pyroxene and olivine. One key finding in these meteorites is […] The post 1.3-Billion-Year-Old Martian Meteorite Had Limited Exposure to Water, Study Finds appeared first on Sci.News: Breaking Science News ..read more
