Mars Curiosity Rover Historic Find Confirms Water Evidence and Maybe Life 2012
Mars Curiosity Rover Finds Water Evidence
Stream Beds have been confirmed by NASA Officials
NASA reveals unprecedented on-the-ground evidence: telltale pebbles and gravel.
NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has made its first major science discovery, and it’s one for the ages.
Scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), announced Thursday that Water fast running and relatively deep—once coursed over Mars’s now bone-dry surface, a finding based on the presence of rounded pebbles and gravel near the rover’s landing site in Gale Crater and the researchers estimate that the water was present for thousands to millions of years.
This finding represents the first proof that Surface Water once ran on Mars. Planetary scientists have hypothesized that the cut canyons and river like beds which were photographed by Mars satellites had been created by running water :), but they only now do they have on-the-ground confirmation via Mars Curiosity Rover.
