I can't help but chuckle to hear and read the stories coming from NASA about water on Mars. We have now apparently documened "Glaciers" at the Martian mid-latitudes, something first observed by NASA's Viking orbiters in the 1970's. Considering just a few short years ago it was thought generally impossible for water to exist at all, one has to wonder where this is all going.
We'll try and keep on top of it ...
Oceans on Mars?
Did an asteroid kill Mars' magnetic field?
... Depicted in the 2004-2008 movie "Order of the Quest."
And of course we have the infamous Exoplanets that are now creeping in to our daily news.
