Years before - there was a mantra that there is little chance for water to be on planets in our Solar system - and now we are witnessing that almost all of them (including some moons) are suggested to have water.
Regarding Mars - there is even a speculation ( official one) of a 'snow' on its south pole.
I am highly sceptical person - but these images are very interesting IMHO.
Questioning what? As far as the water argument - who exactly confirmed the existance of water on other planets, including mars? As I remember it - it was "official" sources, IE NASA and other astronomical agencies and parties who have access to images, data, and information LONG before us (IE. The masses) have access to them.
Again, as I stated before - what exactly is the point? If there was life on Mars, as I stated before - I'm pretty darn sure we'd already know about it. Especially if there were any remnance of ANY kind of civilization. So what we're really talking about here is vegitation or microbial life. Well - i'll stake my money that the same people who discovered water on other planets before me, will assuredly find vegitation and life before me, thus this endeavor is pointless. Because in all realitly, I'm betting that none of us have the capacity to obtain a sample of mars (anything on mars that a sample can be taken of) and test it under the rigorous and scientifically complex tests to positively determine the existance of microbial life on said planet.
Unless all you really want to accomplish is -
"nana NASA I told you so!"
I don't have a problem with exploration and the aquisition of knowledge. I embrace it. But this is not it. If you really want to find a conspiracy here, try looking INTO the agencies that intrepret the data and present it to us rather than trying to beat them at their own game. Because unforuntely, as stated earlier, THEY are the experts. The masses believe THEM not us crazy CT'rs.
It's only a suggestion.
