Former UA undergraduate Lujendra Ojha discovered possible water-related streaks on the red planet's slopes.
The geosciences capstone field course will be based in Italy and serve juniors, seniors and graduate students starting next summer.
The findings from a UA-led study suggest a worsening future for the conflict-troubled region, which includes Somalia, Djibouti and Ethiopia.
A team of UA researchers can already "farm" on the red planet with a fully functional prototype greenhouse that produces sweet potatoes and strawberries.
