Yes, it's only water under the surface, and maybe a few extremophiles.

I love the photos captioned "white-light adjusted" by JPL. In other words- that's what Mars really looks like.

Now that they've discovered water on Mars, they need to start looking for coffee.

Freeze-dried, of course.

I think that was more like 'this channel was totally cut by flowing water' as opposed to 'we could totally drink that'.

so if we bring a nuclear reactor to mars we can make large amounts of oxygen and hydrogen to sustain a mission and have fuel for cars, planes and the trip back.

cool, where can I sign up?

Here's something to feel genuinely proud to be a human being, rather than disappointment, and it should be Big News! So once again, disappointed that this isn't generating all the excitement it should.
