Scientists have made a surprising discovery about Mars by playing with muck in the laboratory.
An international team of researchers wondered how volcanoes that spew mud instead of molten rock might look on the Red Planet compared with their counterparts here on Earth.
In chamber experiments, simulated Martian mud flows were seen to behave a bit like boiling toothpaste.
Under certain conditions, the fluid even began to bounce.
