Scientists Find Signs Water Is Flowing on Mars


www.nytimes.com

Shifting dark streaks on the surface of Mars are signs that water is flowing there today, scientists said Thursday.

The possible presence of liquid water is certain to revive speculation that Mars is teeming with microbial organisms. The recipe for life, at least as we know it, calls for liquid water, carbon-based molecules and a source for energy.

There is plenty of ice on Mars, but the chemical reactions for life come to a halt when water freezes.

Wow I thought there was only ice, this seems like a pretty big discovery, where there is water, there is life. Although Martian life may only consist of bacteria or microbial life it is still a start.

Some people attacked the NY Times as a source in another thread of mine and I'm wondering if this is deemed legitimate, seems to be.

Enjoy!

Using probability, if the planet right next to earth has flowing water (life) then the possibility of advanced life in the entire universe is definitely higher than previously expected.
