The results of this research will allow us to address important unanswered questions about the formation and evolution of Mars, such as: How wet is Mars interior compared to the Earths, and how has this changed over time Is the martian mantle well mixed like Earths, or heterogeneous like that of the Earth s moon Was there ever significant volatile cycling at the martian surface Answering these questions will help determine how similar the Earth and Mars really are, hence this research has strong astrobiological implications.
