Martian lake in Canada contains extreme life forms: Does this hint at life on Mars? [VIDEO]

The Spotted Lake has different pools of concentrated salts and brine that is locally believed to have healing properties. Experts said that it seems like a huge "chunk of Mars has somehow broken off and travelled 33 million miles."

A recent report has revealed that a lake in British Columbia, Canada consists some unique features which are similar to that of Mars. The lake that is believed to have healing powers looks like a large body of water with hundreds of different colour of pools inside it.

Although, it's not medically proven yet but it is believed that each of those pools is coloured differently and has different medicinal qualities in it. For example, one of the pools may be helpful for people suffering from warts, while another one may help someone suffering from aches and joint pains.

The Mirror reported that the Spotted Lake contains contains the highest concentration of sulphates on Earth.

The experts, who work at The Science Channel, have studied the lake and said that it seems like a huge "chunk of Mars has somehow broken off and travelled 33 million miles."

Meanwhile, there is another interesting fact about the unique lake, situated at the bottom of a sealed hollow basin. The Mars-like water body is a closed system and there are no streams running in or out of the lake.

The experts believe that the water evaporates from the lake only during summer season and leaves Mars-like multi-coloured saline brine pools behind. "It's like Mars has come to Earth, and in these weird holes are clues to life on the Red Planet," experts said.

Reports added that one of those pools contain Epsom salt which is said to be very effective for curing rheumatism and arthritis.

According to experts, this bizarre lake has micro-organisms, and they believe that there's possibility of the "Martian Lake" to have "Martian organisms."

"Analysis of water from Spotted Lake reveals that organisms are indeed living in the pools," experts added.

Biochemist Rollie Williams said: "It's possible that some kind of life like that might be existing on Mars, which would be an insane discovery."
