• Curiosity found evidence for the crater lake on Mars in the 154 kilometers wide Gale Crater
  • In the ancient past, runoff from the crater rim created a lake in which deposited sediments gradually built up Mount Sharp which rises about 5.5 km high from the center of the crater
  • The lake was large enough it could have lasted millions of years, sufficient time for life to get started and thrive, sufficient time for lake sediments to build up and form Mount Sharp
