Liquid Water on Mars!!!!????
How aggravating it is to encounter individuals who still maintain a hard grasp on old and antiquainted teachings about Mars...being a cold, dry and dead world. News like this shakes them up and makes them re-evaluate. Not a comfortable place to be. I guess until they can take a cool refreshing Martian drink, they will always be skeptical. Too bad.
I'm glad that NASA has finally announced the news of flowing water on Mars, and it's just a matter of time - of evidence from biological fingerprints. There is already an increase in methane in the atmosphere...could it be Martian critters?
Just a matter of time.
