>The biggest hint is that one of five speakers at the news briefing will be Lujendra Ojha from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. Ojha made headlines in 2011 when he co-authored a study suggesting that liquid water flowed during the warmer months on Mars.

>He said at the time that, by accident, he noticed irregular features in images taken for another study of gullies in Mars craters. Using a computer algorithm to monitor changes over time, he began to see "finger-like" features and streaks that strongly resembled water. They would appear during warmer seasons and die away during cooler seasons. He has conducted research ever since, to determine if it is definitely water.

Yay.... i guess.
I mean it is pretty cool, since it's actually flowing water this time. But this must be the third time we get news that "There's water on mars!"
I must be the famous "layman" i keep hearing about., since i'm not super excited at this time.

I wonder how religous people will act to this if there is actually some sort of developed life there. Idk, they would probably act the same as to fossils, etc.

It's not flowing water so much as slightly hydrated salt that is pulled downwards by gravity. But kudo's to NASA for spinning it as a major discovery to get clicks.

NASA has turned into the Cracked website of science.

shieeet, well thanks for the correction. i didn't really have time, other than to just glance at the article.

I guess nothing too exciting is on the horizon, until we start sending probes to europa/titan
Yeah, i don't know really shit but i recall them being two quite interesting planetary bodies

According to the scientific article itself they've discovered deposited salts in the flow formations. Which hints that there's a source of brine(water with high salt concentrations) under the surface. Brine is the only form of flowing water that can exist on Mars as the atmosphere is so thin regular water would just evaporate, which is why this is so exciting.

There's no outright claim that 'slightly hydrated salts' are making these formations:
>Brine flows (or seeps) have been proposed to explain the formation of recurring slope lineae1, 2, 3, yet no direct evidence for either liquid water or hydrated salts has been found4.

I think it's awesome, mars seems to be a lot more dynamical of a place today

So they did not find ACTUAL liquid water that's flowing somewhere in some crack or so?

Nah, no actual liquid water. NASA has practically proven water activity on Mars, but scientifically we can't say anything definite just yet.

Heh, I remember this photo from a Youtube video of a guy trying to point out "sculptures" in those rocks while the comment section was blowing up about how much of a dumbass he was to focus on non-existent martian art when there's a stream of water right there in the same damn picture that is unacknowledged by NASA.

Just because it's liquid doesn't mean it's water.
Could be semen.
