The recent recognition of redbeds on Mars similar to the Permian redbeds in Kansas has given speculation that (1) the beds probably were deposited by water; (2) they could contain evaporites; and (3) the evaporites might contain fluid inclusions with organic matter. If these conjectures are correct, then samples of these sediments collected on future missions might substantiate previous life on the red planet.
