NASA's Opportunity rover sent back new images from Mars showing that small spheres previously found on the surface also exist below, in a trench the
rover dug. Hints of salty water were also found in the trench, but much more analysis is needed to learn the true composition.
Meanwhile Opportunity's twin rover, Spirit, is about to dig a trench of its own in order to investigate soil that sticks to its wheels, suggesting
the fine-grained material might be moist.
Not sure if this was tipped on but this just cam out at 5:45 EST on CNN
