The discovery was made possible thanks to the use of the MARSIS (Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding) instrument, an Italian radar installed on board the European probe Mars Express that was developed under the control of the Italian Space Agency, on an original project by the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, in collaboration with NASA and realized by Thales Alenia Space Italia.

The conference will be attended by Roberto Orosei, researcher of the National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF) and scientific responsible of the MARSIS radar, Enrico Flamini, Professor of Planetology at the University of Chieti-Pescara and Project Manager of the MARSIS experiment for the Italian Space Agency, and Professor of the University of Roma Tre Elena Pettinelli, co-investigator of MARSIS.
