NASA: Curiosity found evidence for an ancient, flowing stream on Mars at a few sites, including this outcrop named after Hottah Lake in Canada. It may look like a broken sidewalk, but this geological feature on Mars is actually exposed bedrock made up of smaller fragments cemented together, or what geologists call a sedimentary conglomerate. Scientists theorize that the bedrock was disrupted in the past, giving it the titled angle, most likely via impacts from meteorites.
The news are extremely exciting. For Years, and ever since I was a little kid, I’ve thought about whether there ever was life on Mars. The question today, could we ever colonize Mars? If in the past there was water on Mars, that’s a sign of life. Whether species ever lived on Mars, that’s a whole other story. Truth be told it’s a scary scenario, especially for the people who watched Prometheus, but also so interesting.
NASA’s Mars Curiosity is collecting incredible information for us, humankind is stepping forward with everything this robot brings back to us. X-rays were discovered from a scientist, not a doctor. Keep up the good work NASA!
I can’t wait to see more results, maybe one day our grand-kids’ grand-kids will be watching Africa play Asia on their “TV” from Area 42 on Mars. I don’t know whether we are there yet, but it is exciting, it’s thrilling!
