hydrogen-rich first atmosphere for Mars

Mars may have been born as a blue and water-covered world long before the Earth was formed.

Hydrogen would have had a significant impact on Mars' early climate.

The new model has enabled new interpretations of Mars deuterium-to-hydrogen (D/H) data.

Mars meteorites are mostly igneous rocks, essentially solidified lavas.

Hydrogen atmospheres could even be advantageous for the origin of life.

The findings of the team's research suggest that early Mars was at least as promising a site for the origin of life as early Earth was.

Mars could have had a thick, hydrogen-rich atmosphere, pleasant temperatures, and a blue ocean covering its surface.
