    08-05-2011 09:52 AM #1 Possible water found flowing on a different planet?

    I heard about this on the news and thought I'd search it, came across this article, caught my eye a little. They say they found cracks around the edge of the survace which is something that requires water to flow which could prove the existance of another life, something like that anyway


    It’s known that there are frozen water deposits on Mars. Now, it seems that there are seasonal streams of liquid water flowing across the surface of the Red Planet, say astronomers, including an Indian-origin scientist.

    In fact, it was U.S. space agency NASA which said that pictures taken from its Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft showed finger-like features which may be flows of salty water spilling over the rims of craters.

    Lujendra Ojha and colleagues at the University of Arizona now claim that, if confirmed, the discovery could finally help establish whether life could be sustained on Mars.

    “I was baffled when I first saw those features. We soon realised they were different from slope streaks that had been observed before. These were highly seasonal and we observed some of them had grown by more than 200 metres in a matter of just two Earth months,” Jha said.

    His colleague, Dr Alfred McEwen said the markings were “a mystery now, but a solvable mystery”. “The best explanation we have for these observations so far is a flow of briny water, although this study does not prove that,” he said.

    Here's the image, I think its a satellite image, not to sure maybe fake?



    This undated image released by the European Space Agency taken from on board the European Space Agency probe Mars Express shows of a patch of ice sitting on the floor of a crater near the planet's north pole according the the agency. NASA scientists on Thursday said they have found "repeated and predictable evidence of water" flowing on Mars.

    Source might not look real but tomorrow you'll see this in your local newspaper no doubt.
