CAPE CANAVERAL (FLORIDA):Mars appears to have flowing streams of salty water, at least in the summer, scientists reported Monday in a finding that could have major implications for the possibility of life on the planet.Scientists in 2008 confirmed the existence of frozen water on Mars. But the latest observations from an instrument aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter support the long-time theory that salt water in liquid form flows down certain Martian slopes each summer, according to the researchers.“Mars just got more interesting,” NASA said via Twitter. The space agency called the results “a major science finding.”
