Mars didn't turn out to be as quiet as it was initially thought. Instead, the red planet is rumbling and grumbling with powerful seismic activity. Deep below its surface, the planet is witnessing dynamic tremors, and even today, there might be hot lava flowing just beneath the Martian crust. If it turns out to be accurate, it will change our understanding of Martian geodynamics acquired over the years and suggest that volcanic activity on the red planet is not just possible but is still occurring, and that, too, more frequently than expected.
But what does this rumbling signify? How will it change our understanding of Martian geology? Finally, and most importantly, how will this ground-breaking discovery impact our search for past and present life on Mars?
The 33rd episode of the Sunday Discovery Series answers all these questions in detail.
