A new study indicated that there is a lake of liquid water beneath the southern polar ice cap of Mars.

Radar has detected the presence of large body of water.

Radar pulses that were sent back showed 29 sets of radar samples that created a map of change in signal almost a mile below the surface. It looked similar to lakes that are found beneath Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets on Earth. 

Researchers were careful to look at other causes, but eventually ruled out other possibilities.
