ScienceDaily (Mar. 20, 2009) — Salty, liquid water has been detected on a leg of the Mars Phoenix Lander and therefore could be present at other locations on the planet, according to analysis by a group of mission scientists led by a University of Michigan professor.

So it seems the day we get our confirmation, of at least salty, water is at hand! My my, alot of things seem to be coming out in the open lately. These sure are interesting times, a good break from terrifying times haha.
