New evidence of water on early Mars, and a climate like the Earth’s

"New research supports the theory that early Mars had a thick, wet atmosphere, and a climate similar to the Earth’s climate now. The atmosphere of Mars is currently less than 1% the density of Earth’s atmosphere. That’s one of the main reasons that the Earth’s climate is wet and Mars is very dry. ... The new findings, just published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, provide evidence that early Mars was saturated with water, and that it’s atmosphere was at least 20 times thicker than it is now."
