Curiosity Rover Finds "Ancient Streambed" Proving Mars Once Had Water

Mars 3

eldavojohn (898314) writes "As NPR reports, NASA's Curiosity Rover has tweeted pictures of proof of water on Mars. Indications arose earlier this year but researchers are now calling this proof of a stream ankle to hip deep running at about three feet per second judging by the pictures. The shapes prove these rocks were weathered as they were transported by something and the sizes tell you that that something couldn't be wind."

Water? (1)

Why is it that all rivers are made of water? Did curiosity determine it was water, there are many other liquids that can flow in rivers. I've seen the movie.

Well they do but the announcement was made via ustream at this afternoon's news conference. I linked the video and some pictures I saved during the conference on my website (http://geekslop.com/2012/nasa-finds-evidence-of-flowing-streams-on-mars [geekslop.com] ). I felt like they played it up a bit but I guess I buy their reasoning.
