NASA: SALT WATER ON MARS, SUGGESTS LIFE POSSIBLE

Excited experts report Mars appears to have not only frozen water, but flowing streams of salty water, at least in summer.
NASA scientists say these observations ”strongly support” a longtime belief that briny water flows down certain Martian slopes every summer.

They tend to appear and grow during the warmest months, then fade the rest of the year.
Salt lowers the freezing point of water, which scientists say would explain their appearance only in the summer.
Previously, experts have found ample evidence that Mars was once much warmer and wetter billions of years ago than it is now and could have supported life then.
What has not been clear is if the colder, drier Red Planet today could still support microscopic life.
Researchers say the discovery warrants further exploration to determine if any life may exist there.
Many experts think life could survive deep underground but not necessarily on the surface.
The study’s findings have been published in the journal ‘Nature Geoscience’.
