+ - Mars Curiosity Rover Finds Granite In Ancient Volcano -> 1

Submitted by minty3
minty3 (2942557) writes "Granite, scientists suggest, could have formed on the Red Planet after large amounts of feldspar were discovered in an ancient volcano.

"We think some of the volcanoes on Mars were sporadically active for billions of years," James Wray, the study’s lead author, said. "It seems plausible that in a volcano you could get enough iterations of that reprocessing that you could form something like granite.""
