NASA TO ANNOUNCE DISCOVERY OF WATER ON MARTIAN SURFACE

[Image of terrain with "seepage" and "ponded" features]

Rumors are sweeping the Internet that NASA is set to announce the
discovery
of water on the Martian surface, perhaps in the Valles Marineris region
of
the planet. This major discovery would bolster the possibility that life
is
present on Mars, and would give explorers a great location to start
looking.

As mentioned in a story on Space.com*, NASA plans to make the
announcement
during a press conference set for Thursday, June 29. The report also
mentions the possibility of these features being volcanic in origin,
rather
than water. Malin Space Science Systems, the company that built &
operates
the camera on MGS, is reportedly submitting a research paper to be
published
in Science magazine.
