  4. 4. Why Mars and why water? What are the current outstanding questions to drive future exploration? • • • When and where did liquid water persist with a sufficiently high activity to support life? Did life or pre-biotic chemistry develop? What drove a fundamental change, from the Noachian to Hesperian periods, in the surface environment recorded in aqueous deposits?
