Breaking news from NASA today after they announced that water is still likely flowing on Mars. New evidence from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter strongly adds to the theory that water is indeed still flowing, and opens up the discussion further that there could potentially still be life on Mars.
According to the entry in Nature Geoscience, the water is likely to salty to sustain life however the journal authors suggest that “the detection described here warrants further astrobiological characterization and exploration of these unique regions on Mars.”
This opens up the door to future research and exploration which will hopefully determine whether or not anything is drinking this water now or in the past. What a time to be alive.
