It's been obvious since Mars was discovered that there's flowing water there, if there wasn't the water in the canals would be really green and stagnant, and the smell would drive the Martians to have to live in hermetically sealed domes




I'll crawl back under my Mars rock now

They may not be looking for the right gases, we of course assume oxidized gasses or dioxide...

Mbe completely different, perhaps the darkening is the actual bi-product of LIFE!

Like a living syrup...

Was that the same one who asked about buttermilk? I lol'ed hard at that one. This is blowing up for sure. Even folks at work who have no clue about this are excited.

No, they are found at mid latitudes. You may be confused by the "equator-facing slopes".

They appear and lengthen in the southern spring and summer from 48 degrees to 32 degrees south latitudes favoring equator-facing slopes. These times and places have peak surface temperatures from about 10 degrees below zero Fahrenheit to 80 degree above zero Fahrenheit (about 250 to 300 Kelvin). Liquid brines near the surface might explain this activity, but the exact mechanism and source of the water are not understood.

I can get down with this hypothesis. It does kind of look like the mountains are "flushing out" nasty black crap

on the Ustream, Dylan from NASA states:

"Life has most definitely formed on other planets than Earth Kepler Results infer estimates of atleasst conservative estimate 2 billion Earth like planets in Galaxy"

from NASA.....

I'm loving this!!!

Just from my own obs of the conference, they should of planted a couple Nasanites in the seats to ask some questions. At least the girl who asked gully question is asking something.

Of course, using single celled life on Earth as an analogy we would most likely see oxygen as a waste gas. Given the highly transient source of this liquid water then any life at the surface would be plant based and very simple, algae at best. Of course one of the indications of algae dying is... brown patches where they perish out of water.

Good call my friend.

What does this mean for creationist if they find life?

wow this has come from nowhere,always interested a little excited when hearing new news about whats the goings on on mars.
hopefully we'll get more details as time goes on,this all seems to me to be leading to a manned landing sometime in the next 10 or 15 years,we're getting little bits of info every so often to keep interest in mars in the public eye.

good times

It's intensely interesting that they keep talking about life. Are we being eased into an announcement a bit further down the line?

Bah, "Curiosity has not been sufficiently sterilised to prevent contamination to liquid water of Earth life."

Hey NASA, here's a crazy thought, you know, just throwing it out there. Delay the launch of Curiosity, unpack that bad boy and freakin' well sterilise it! Then go find the water.


Well, knowing what is there now is a good idea.

You know, before the plan on permanently contaminating it with Earth Life.

Phage, I would be interested in your analysis of this announcement and what it could mean for the possibility of life and future exploration.

Yes.
If convincing evidence of life is found it will be announced.
With much and deserved fanfare.

I'd like to personally thank Paratus for bringing this to the ATS community's attention.

I had no idea this was happening today and but for a quick visit to ATS I would have completely missed a fascinating news conference and something that will provide us all with some deep questions to ponder.

Kudos to you sir!

To answer your question, yes. They've been doing this for decades (start watching at 1:35)
