NASA finds water and potential for microscopic forms of life on Mars

NASA believe Mars has ‘rivers’ of periodically flowing water – real, liquid water – which is of course the key component to supporting living things. Calling the announcement “Mars Mystery Solved ,” NASA says images taken from the Mars orbit show ‘streaks’ running down the walls of valleys and craters that are caused by liquid water flowing during the planet’s summertime. This is a substantial conclusion because, if you know anything about Mars, you know that it’s a cold, cold place. The average temperature there is -80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, in the peak of summer, some spots on the red planet can rise to a balmy 70 degrees Fahrenheit, which is more than adequate warmth to thaw some of the ice locked away on Mars and release liquid water across its terrain.
