Traces of ancient ocean discovered on Mars

A recently released set of topography maps provides new evidence for an ancient northern ocean on Mars. The maps offer the strongest case yet that the planet once experienced sea-level rise consistent with an extended warm and wet climate.

Jupiter's Moon Europa Has Signs of Liquid Water

Strange double ridges on the surface of Jupiter's ice moon Europa could be signposts to shallow reservoirs of water. 

China's Chang'e-5 probe proves presence of water on Moon

There is as much as 120 parts per million of water (as hydroxyl and/or H2O) in the lunar regolith, new data from the lander of China’s Chang’e-5 lunar probe has revealed.

Evidence of water vapor at Jupiter's moon Ganymede

For the first time, astronomers have uncovered evidence of water vapor in the atmosphere of Jupiter's moon Ganymede.

Titan's Largest Methane Sea is Over 100 Meters

Kraken Mare, a sea of liquid methane on Saturn's moon Titan, is at least 100-m deep near its center, according to a recent analysis of Cassini's data.

NASA's SOFIA discovers water on sunlit surface of Moon

NASA has confirmed, for the first time, water on the sunlit surface of the Moon. This discovery indicates that water may be distributed across the lunar surface, and not limited to cold, shadowed places.

There is salty water on dwarf planet Ceres

By studying Ceres' gravity, scientists learned more about the dwarf planet's internal structure and were able to determine that the water reservoir is about 40 km deep and hundreds of km wide.

Pluto May Have Liquid Ocean Beneath Icy Crust

The accretion of new material during Pluto's formation may have generated enough heat to create a liquid ocean that has persisted beneath an icy crust to the present day.

How to Make the Food and Water on Mars

Projects BIOWYSE and TIME SCALE are being developed in Norway. These two systems are all about providing astronauts with a sustainable and renewable supply of drinking water and plant food. 

Water Discovered in the Atmosphere of an Exoplanet

Astronomers using the Hubble space telescope have discovered water in the atmosphere of an exoplanet in its star’s habitable zone. The water was detected as vapour in the atmosphere. The planet is called K2-18b.

Curiosity confirms clay deposits on slopes of Mount Sharp on Mars

Clay often forms in the presence of water – a key ingredient for the evolution of life as it is known on Earth – and Curiosity’s latest findings add more evidence that a significant amount of water once pooled and flowed in Gale Crater on Mars.

An Astounding Amount of Water Discovered on Mars

Scientists detected a massive reservoir of frozen water sandwiched by layers of sand beneath the northern polar ice cap on Mars. This reservoir contains so much ice that, if melted and brought to the surface, it would submerge the entire planet.

Ice confirmed at the moon's poles

Using data from NASA's Moon Mineralogy Mapper instrument, scientists have identified three specific signatures that definitively prove there is water ice at the surface of the Moon.

Exoplanets may contain vast amounts of water

Scientists have shown that water is likely to be a major component of those exoplanets which are between two to four times the size of Earth. It will have implications for the search of life in our Galaxy.

NASA just announced new evidence for water plumes on Europa

Citing data collected by NASA's Galileo probe more than two decades ago, scientists report that giant jets of water are spouting more than 100 miles off Jupiter moon Eupora's surface.
