NASA Finds Water on Mars
Posted on Sep 29, 2013
The Curiosity rover found H2O particles bound to other minerals in Martian dirt. According to scientists, it’s enough water to hydrate astronauts who wish to explore the planet in the future.
But before more speculations about Martians attacking Earth start to spread, Salon reports that the academics who discovered the water claim life on Mars is still “unlikely”:
Leshin considers the new findings quite “exciting” since apparently, warming up a cubic foot of the foreign soil can result in “a couple water bottles’ worth that you would take to the gym.” There you have it—astronauts in space can do aerobics now, if they so choose and gravity allows.
