Water Flowing On Mars

BREAKING NEWS: Liquid water is flowing on Mars right now: NASA
Updated Wed. Dec. 6 2006 1:22 PM ET

NASA scientists announced Wednesday afternoon stunning revelations from Mars Global Surveyor: Cumulative evidence of liquid water flowing on Mars - not millions of years ago but right now.

MGS mission scientists showed changes in a gully in a crater that all but proves liquid flowed through the gully between 1999 and 2004.

"You've all heard of a smoking gun...This a squirting gun," said Mars Exploration Program scientist Michael Meyer.

The scientists say the water seen in the MGS images is the equivalent of 5-10 swimming pools.

The scientists also claim to have found evidence of crater formation from a recent meteor impact.

NASA recently lost contact with Mars Global Surveyor, but not before it was able to relay images of the water and crater formation over a short number of years.

Scientists say there are possibly so many meteors hitting Mars that if you lived there during a multi-year mission, you would likely be close enough to one of the impacts to hear it.

NASA says it will use this information for long-term plans for a manned mission to Mars later this century.

More details to come...

I think we will be extinct by the time Mars is habitable. :-D

Wow interesting news. Probably won't have much of an immediate effect on anything, but still interesting.

I think that wouldn't be too hard. They'd have to be bacterial life, so all we would need is a spray can filled with water and ammonia.
