What You Should Know about The Red Planet

Any Signs of Life?
After his telescopic observations of Mars, Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli noticed a patchwork of linear structures which he called “canali” (in Italian), meaning channels but was mistranslated as canals, an artificial structure, giving rise to the hypothesis of life on the red planet. The “canals” were later proven to be optical illusions. However, water has been found on Mars and with that, hope of finding some sort of life.
