McLaughlin Crater on Mars (NASA) Planetary scientists have found evidence that a Martian crater was once home to a lake fed by groundwater. Scientists reporting in the latest edition of the journal Nature Geoscience said they found evidence of carbonate and clay minerals in the floor of the 2.2-kilometer-deep McLaughlin Crater. Evidence for the minerals comes from spectrometer data from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft.
