Well there might not be any methane on Mars, but there is a lot of water.

The latest news from curiosity is if you heat up one cubic foot of mars you can harvest 2 pints of water.

That's a lot of water and now terraforming and colonization of Mars is a lot more feasible.

Pretty exciting news IMO


If you heat up a cubic foot of Mars soil, you can harvest around two pints (one liter) of water. According to new data returned by NASA’s Curiosity rover, this isn’t just a one-off lucky find, either: It seems that most of the dirt on Mars harbors large amounts of water. This is very exciting news for future human exploration of Mars, because it’s prohibitively difficult to transport water from the surface of Earth to the Red Planet — and, in one fell swoop, it also makes the eventual terraforming and colonization of Mars a lot more feasible.

When it includes a huge amount of Dr. Pepper - call me. THAT would be news.

Aside from the fact that its 100% impossible to terraform mars because it's magnetic shielding is gone and thus its 100% impossible for it to maintain an atmosphere, this is wonderful news. It makes a colony of some sort much more feasible.
