Mars rover finds first evidence of water: a river of it
« on: October 10, 2012, 06:29:58 am »
NASA's Mars rover, Curiosity, dispatched to learn if the most Earth-like planet in the solar system was suitable for microbial life, has found clear evidence its landing site was once awash in water, a key ingredient for life, scientists said Thursday.

Good -- but not surprising -- news from Mars.

No, not all that surprising
I've seen enough landforms best explained by flowing liquid to be fairly convinced that Mars was warmer and wetter at some point in its history
The only real question is 'how much' and 'for how long'?

I thought this was awesome when I first read about it. I even had a dream last night and in it I was comparing markings on Mars and Earth LOL!
