It may sound a bit far-fetched but researchers say that they have found evidence that a mega-tsunami engulfed the red planet about 3-billion years ago.

The Lomonosov crater which is located in the Northern section of Mars is believed to be the site of massive tsunamis.

An asteroid is believed to have caused 150-metre-high waves.

This supports the theory that Mars' northern lowland region once supported a large ocean.
