During a news conference at NASA headquarters, agency scientists and officials discussed new findings from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) that provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars.

These downhill flows, known as recurring slope lineae (RSL), often have been described as possibly related to liquid water.
