I hope to see colonies on mars in my lifetime.
Global warming, we must have melted Mars.
In a few years, we'll have Martian Spring Water at the 7-11.
Regardless of how people can interpret data and market new life for their organization, not that there's anything wrong with that, I think NASA is looking for increased funding... and to be taken off of Obama directive to work with the Muslims.
You laugh. 66 years after the Wright Brothers flew the first time, we put a man on the moon. 100 years after AG Bell invented the tellio-phone (been to his lab in the VZ bldg in Boston) you could easily, reliably, and "cheaply" call around the world. 40 years after that, we hold all of the power of the computing world at our fingertips 24 hours a day and can do nothing if the WIFI is out.
Martianwater? Seems like a natural fit to our culture. LOL
I just need to go trademark the name Martian Spring Water, Martianwater, and every other variation that comes to mind!
Great! All they need now is some corn to make whiskey.
What is science, Altaris?
I sure hope it is water and not Mercury by mistake. Might have to have the EPA take over NASA...
Websters Dictionary says: "knowledge about or study of the natural world based on facts learned through experiments and observation"
when scientists said (years ago) that the martian equator averages about 70 degrees Fahrenheit the "chance" of liquid water being there was a foregone conclusion.
We are probably going to discover simple et lifeforms in our lifetime.
We have already; they are in Washington DC.
Mars has very little atmosphere -- atmospheric pressure is less than 1% of earth's. Water boils at just about any temperature at that kind of pressure. Also, temps at the equator can be as high as 80F on the day side and -55F on the night side during the same season. So the average is not that meaningful, and the presence of liquid water was not at all a foregone conclusion.
Subsurface saline moisture isn't exactly like the fountain at the beginning of Married with Children.
Also, a bit short of air.
Was just wondering yesterday...voice communication w the planet might be near impossible. Slow transmission of data files containing pics and telemetry is about all we can do. The bots on the surface can't even do that without relaying to the MRO.
Too bad there isn't a way to orbit a relay satellite in a solar orbit halfway between Mars and earth.
Oh good lord! WTF!!!
When is Obama leaving town?
Air? Who says all life forms need air
