Nasa's Curiosity rover finds
water below surface of Mars
Prof Andrew Coates, head of planetary science at the Mullard Space, said: “The evidence so far is that any water would be in the form of permafrost.
It’s the first time we’ve had evidence of liquid water there now.”
So, one step at a time, we finally have evidence of liquid water on Mars, thanks to good ole Curiosity.
The article makes quite a good point regarding the fact that water is a must-have ingredient of life, but water alone is far from enough for life to
emerge. Something that I always thought would be the next logical step, meaning that finding water on Mars is not that big-a-deal after all.
The thing is, that they have come to this conclusion through measurments, Curiousity hasn't touched water literally, nor do we have the chance yet to
take a sample for analysis...
Oh well, one step at a time...
