Mars Had an Ocean 4 Billion Years Ago

In this 360  VR 4K video documentary posted by VR 360 TV, we learn that Mars had an ocean 4 billion years ago as we explore the ancient past of a water planet Mars.

Although scientists have found some evidence of flowing liquid water during the summer months on Mars, and a layers of ice just under the red soil, Mars is a sterile world where the atmosphere is only 1% the density of Earth's. Mars has only half Earth’s diameter, 11% its mass and 38% its gravity, making it easy for upper layers of the original atmosphere to have boiled away into the vacuum of space and been blasted out by meteor strikes.

However Mars was not always like this as massive ancient ocean’s once covered nearly half of the northern hemisphere.

360-degree videos let you look around your environment, so pay attention to what’s sneaking up behind you.

In a web browser you can simply click and drag the video around. On a mobile phone you can look around by moving your phone. In a VR visor, just turn your head. With the visor, sometimes it’s best if you have a swivel chair and a few feet of clearance in the real world.

As always, if you start to feel dizzy or nauseous, take off the visor and take a break.
