NASA’s Curiosity Rover Finds Old Streambed on Mars


NASA’s newest Mars rover has found evidence that a stream once ran vigorously across the area on the Red Planet where the rover is now driving. The finding is a different type of evidence for water on Mars than ever found before. Scientists are studying Curiosity’s images of rocks containing ancient streambed gravels. The sizes and shapes of stones cemented into a layer of conglomerate rock are clues to the speed and distance of a long-ago stream’s flow.

  1. is it just me, or do all of these people look like they are highly disturbed as if they are doing this at gunpoint or something??? very very odd, I'm no psychologist but they are showing obvious signals of distress, right in the beginning when that lady smiles, right after the face she makes is soooo strange!!!

  2. a question comes to mind, if there is water on mars water life giving properties tell us now that you have descoverd water is it time to colonize the planet not look at rocks.
    if this is true the goverment of usa must be pissed off that you let us know that there is water on mars

  3. It is rumored that there is a strong presence of methane in the martian atmosphere, since there are organic molecules there, is there the possibility that aome form of life is actually producing it??

  4. Gee, millions spent to find dirt. We knew from earlier missions about stream beds and geology. How stable is the area? Is the sand and gravel suitable for habitat construction? Did you drill to investigate subsurface water? If there is can it be separated and process oxygen and hydrogen? Is this media suitable for some sort of vegetation growth?
