Human error blamed for Mars probe's loss

Shortly before it failed, it also found stunning evidence that liquid water recently coursed through Mars. The discovery, which still needs to be confirmed, raises the possibility that the planet may have an environment conducive to primitive life.

I love how that bit is at the end.

EK, a question if you will. We know Mars had running water. To have liquid water its atmosphere had to be denser from what I have read.
Q1. At a higher density,what would the temperatures be-say at the poles and equater? Anyway to model that using known info?

Q2 Whats the latest theories as to what happened to the atmos of Mars?

Thanks!
I know enough to know that I know nothing

Water can remain unfrozen at low temperatures and ordinary pressures because of


* freezing point depression due to hydration,
* freezing point depression due to osmotic effects (these are both equilibrium effects),
* supercooling: the delay or absence of formation of an ice crystal in the absence of efficient ice nucleators and/or
* the high viscosity produced by high concentrations of solutes (these are non-equilibrium effects).

As far as what blew away the atmosphere?

Could have been a huge CME from the sun

or whatever caused this:
