NASA discovers flowing water on Mars! Today!
The implications are far-reaching. Perhaps there once was life there after all.
Perhaps there still is.
“There is liquid water today on the surface of Mars," says Michael Meyers, NASA's leading Mars expert.
The evidence consists of pictures taken from orbit showing dark streaks on the walls of valleys and craters in the Martian Spring with intricate, fanlike patterns typical of water flow. Scientists speculate that the water may come from underground aquifers.
The bottom line: Mars has at least the potential to be habitable.
