New images of the equatorial region of Mars show a pattern of spirals in the planet's surface features. Some experts had considered that the features of this area were formed by water or ice, but these spirals now point to lava flows, known as Pahoehoe flows and seen here on earth. If you are interested in reading more about this you can go to the National Geographic Magazine site.
A team of scientists – led by Dr Brian Hynek from the University of Colorado Boulder – has discovered evidence of an ancient lake that likely represents some of the last potentially habitable surface water ever to exist on the Red Planet. This image shows part of the Meridiani Planum region, Mars: the chloride salt deposit is in red; the lake contour is in blue. Image credit: MarsTrek / NASA / Brian M. Hynek et al. / Sci-News.com.
