World’s oldest water captures the imagination

Greg Slater, Geography & Earth Sciences, is part of a team of Canadian and UK researchers that has collected and analyzed some of the world’s oldest water, some estimated to be as old as 2.6 billion years old. The water, collected from a Timmins, Ontario mine nearly 2.4 km below ground, has implications about where life on Earth, and Mars, may exist. The study, published in the journal Nature, has caught the attention of media from across Canada.
