NASA: Signs of Liquid Water Found on Surface of Mars

Kenneth Chang, writing for The New York Times:

In a paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience, Dr. McEwen and other scientists identified waterlogged molecules — salts of a type known as perchlorates — in readings from orbit.

“That’s a direct detection of water in the form of hydration of salts,” Dr. McEwen said. “There pretty much has to have been liquid water recently present to produce the hydrated salt.”

Never thought my week would begin with me getting more excited over hydrated salt than with 13 million iPhones being sold.

Life is super funny sometimes.
