A Western research team may have discovered water on Mars. Researchers at the Centre for Planetary Science and Exploration have found pits located in several craters on the Red Planet. They have determined that these pits were caused by the interaction between the heat of the crater impacts and subsurface water or ice.

CHRW News caught up with Dr. Livio Tornabene, a research professor at Western and investigator for the Centre, to talk about the discovery and if it could lead to finding life below Mars' surface.
