Images taken from the Mars orbit showed dark, finger-like markings that, typically less than five meters in width, appear on slopes during warm seasons, before they dry up in the autumn as surface temperatures drop.

It is still unclear where the water comes from, but it may rise up from underground ice or salty aquifers, or condense out of the thin Martian atmosphere, some scientists suggest.

“This is a significant development, as it appears to confirm that water — albeit briny — is flowing today on the surface of Mars,” said John Grunsfeld, associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington.
