Ok, it's not art-related, but too big to pass up.  Scientists say that the Opportunity rover has found evidence of past water on Mars.

Yep, and now they are debating where the water went:  Perhaps some of it evaporated into space and some of it could still be underground.  They say that was water in sufficient quantities to sustain life in that particular area of Mars. However that does not mean that life had time to get started.  Thoughts opinions etc?  Jan
