Holy schmoly! NASA images show signs of water flowing on Mars... NOW! See this animated .gif and watch it yourself:

Click the image to see the NASA article.

See how the hillside goes from dusty to dark-streaked? The good folks at the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission identify this as from water flowing out of the hillside.

WHOAH! Thanks for the heads-up, [personal profile] normalcyispasse.

My brain fills in all sorts of creepy reasons for the changes in those images, and most of them have nothing to do with water. Still...COOLNESS.

Hmmmm-I wonder if it's water, or some other liquefied gas?
I recall a sci-fi book I read once (The Code of the Life-Maker) where the occupants of the planet drank liquid....ammonia, I think it was, or the planet's rivers were ammonia.
I wouldn't think that Mars would warm up enough to liquefy H2O.
Very interesting!
