Can Mars Support Life?

Answer

Mars is not in a position to support life as there is some ice at the poles and possibly some water in underground repositories. Gravity on mars is 38 percent as strong on Earth and the atmosphere there is thin and comprises mostly of carbon dioxide. However, a new study reveals that there are parts of Mars that may have been modified by liquid water.
