Default Water on Mars!

Mars Shows Signs of Having Flowing Water, Possible Niches for Life, NASA Says

Scientists have for the first time confirmed liquid water flowing on the surface of present-day Mars, a finding that will add to speculation that life, if it ever arose there, could persist now.

“This is tremendously exciting,” James L. Green, the director of NASA’s planetary science division, said during a news conference on Monday. “We haven’t been able to answer the question, ‘Does life exist beyond Earth?’ But following the water is a critical element of that. We now have, I think, great opportunities in the right locations on Mars to thoroughly investigate that.”

That represents a shift in tone for NASA, where officials have repeatedly played down the notion that the dusty and desolate landscape of Mars could be inhabited today.

Numerous reports of a scientific finding of the existence of briny salt water existing on Mars.

This is enormous news. If there is water, there is a fairly high probability of molecular life existing.
