I cannot believe that the train of logic for this thread that everyone is debating is "Did NASA # with the colors of the pictures? If so, then they
must be hiding something, and if they are hiding something, there must be life on Mars! #!"
There are many trains of thought in this thread and the photo colour is just one part. Try checking out some of the other sources and you might be
quite surprised where it leads you. For instance we were told that no liquid water can exist on Mars, and yet the surface temperature does in fact go
above 0 degrees celcius, and that water ice clouds form at the equator.
I addressed the question of water in my post, and was promptly ignored. Maybe if I had more psychadelically colored pictures of landscrapes with
written in Paint everywhere someone might have paid me some attention.
Let me restate, since I think my post was too scientific for this crowd.
YES- TEMPERATURES ON THE SURFACE OF MARS GET ABOVE THE FREEZING POINT OF WATER.
YES- WATER ICE AND WATER VAPOR EXIST ON MARS.
NO- LIQUID WATER CANNOT EXIST EVEN AT ABOVE-FREEZING TEMPERATURES, BECAUSE THE ATMOSPHERE OF MARS IS 1/100 THAT OF EARTH, SO ANY ICE THAT MELTS WILL
IMMEDIATELY BOIL INTO VAPOR.
You people need to read a 6th grade textbook. Most scientists agree that there is probably enough water locked in the ground and atmosphere of Mars to
cover the surface of the planet uniformly with 50 feet of water. The next argument I foresee from anyone that cares to respond to me is that 'OMG
NASA is only telling us that Mars has 0.01 atmospheres because the people already there don't want us to know that Mars is just like Earth!'
When you get to that stage, you might as well just deny every single thing we've learned about Mars in the modern age and start talking about the
advanced alien civilization building the 'canals' all over the damn planet.
