There is Water On Mars! Living In The Red Planet Close?

It has been a dream by many to go beyond living on Earth and find another planet of inhabit. Ans that is why we have the Mars Exploration Program which takes years of reseach and funding to make sure that dream can eventually come true. News from NASA brings a monumental discovery which gives more affirmation of the presence of liquid on the planet.

New evidence from the NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), got images of parts of Mars that show movement of the terrain which is more likely caused by liquid rather than being eroded by wind or sand. 

“Our quest on Mars has been to ‘follow the water,’ in our search for life in the universe, and now we have convincing science that validates what we’ve long suspected,” said John Grunsfeld, astronaut and associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. “This is a significant development, as it appears to confirm that water -- albeit briny -- is flowing today on the surface of Mars.”

Although it may not be exactly water that we have here on Earth, the liquid causing these streaks will be further studied and will be a point of interest for future Martian exploration. 

With this discovery, we earthling and space lovers rejoice to the possibility of living on the planet for the future utilizing it to be used for agriculture, research, and construction. Google even had a special Google doodle celebrating this. Now I am also excited that living on Mars can be achieved within my lifetime, are you also?
